One particular year while trail-running through my ‘go-to’ public park, I would often notice myself travelling for an hour or more without ever passing another person, which I thought odd given that it was just an average-sized park fairly close to a city center. I remember the first few times feeling somewhat isolated and remote, but upon paying closer attention to my surroundings, I began to appreciate the solace offered by the natural beauty of the park and its myriad of inhabitants. Sure, the endorphins were working too, but being by myself out in the fresh air, in a beautiful setting, disconnected from technology for a little while offered me a different perspective – one in which our stewardship needn’t be limited to the things we own – in truth, it shouldn’t be. Throughout the last decade, I’ve rediscovered an affinity for the outdoors and nature in general. Working at EcoSafe affords me the privilege of not only working with a great team that cares, but also one that is doing measurable work to put carbon back in our soils and reduce greenhouse gas emissions with the hopes of providing a habitable planet for future generations.

Food loss and waste occur at each stage of the supply chain. The biggest proportion (about 37%) happens in the home.
