Olioex – The Food Sharing Revolution

Amazing initiative to take action against food waste…

Olioex is the food sharing platform that will connect you to your neighbors and nearby restaurants to help prevent wastage of food. You can easily share your food with those who want it and avoid food waste. It is the perfect food waste solution that will allow us to protect our environment and deserving individuals will never sleep on an empty stomach.

Key facts

  • Food waste is the 3rd largest cause of the production of greenhouse gases in the world.
  • About 1/3 of the food items goes to waste every year because no one wants to eat them.
  • Half of the food waste comes from the house in all the developed countries.

The problem

Food waste is the biggest issue of the present age. In the developed countries we are wasting a reasonable amount of food that can be used to serve hundreds of individuals in the underdeveloped countries. We know that the food in our house cannot reach the poor of the underdeveloped countries. However, there are several homeless individuals around us who have to sleep on an empty stomach because they did not find a job today or the owner did not pay them. There is a lot of food in our fridge that we know will go into the dustbin because no one is interested in having it.

Healthy and nutritious food that is wasted can feed some 2 billion people, more than twice the number of undernourished people in the world, according to data from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Losses occur throughout the production chain: discarded in production and harvest, also during processing and packaging, destroyed during transport, thrown away by supermarkets, restaurants and then the consumer.

The Solution

Olioex has introduced the perfect food waste solution. It is the technological application that will help the individuals to connect with each other and nearby food cafes and restaurants. There are many families who do not have food and they will try to visit the nearby dustbin to find any wasted food items. Olioex is providing all the homeless and poor families a facility to have a decent dinner. It will connect you with your neighbors and cafes who have some extra food available that they will throw in the waste. Do not let them waste it and go get the perfect meal before it reaches the dustbin.

Plastic pollution is the biggest issue in the present age. 311 billion kilos of plastic waste is produced every year due to which the plastic pollution has reached an alarming condition. If we are not able to stop the increasing pollution, the extinction rate of the wildlife and aquatic life will increase.

On the Way to Zero Waste! Can We Become a Zero Waste Planet?

Environmentalists today are working hard to make Planet Earth a zero waste planet. But will their hard work formalize into reality?

Will they ever be able to achieve their dream, especially when millions of people do not have any awareness on how to smartly manage their waste?

Zero waste living is a noble idea and one that requires everyone to participate. It means contributing nothing to landfill, reducing what we need, reusing things as much as we can, spend as little as possible to be recycled, and convert garbage into compost.

Zero waste lifestyle requires that we completely redefine the system. Today we live in a linear economy where we consume resources from the earth and then dump them all the waste into a giant hole in the ground. Going zero waste is about making the shift to a circular economy where we do away with the idea of trash by coming back to nature where there is no trash and everything is usable. In the circular economy, we do not discard resources, but we create a system where all the resources can be brought back fully into the system.

Producing less trash, eliminating demand for wasteful products, replacing plastics bags with reusable cloth bags, using less paper, recycling electronics and converting food waste and biodegradable materials into compost can help us in reducing our trash and carbon footprint on Planet Earth.

Lauren Singer, an environmental activist, blogger, and entrepreneur has switched to Zero Waste lifestyle in New York City. She has been on this journey since 2012. She documents her journey on Trash is for Tossers – a blog that shows how leading a Zero Waste lifestyle is simple, timely, fun, cost-effective, timely and entirely possible for every person.

let’s hear his story:

Sahara Forest Project – From vision to reality

Sahara Forest Project is a company that sparked the idea of turning the Sahara desert into a green area with the establishment of farmland amidst a waterless desert. They have a brilliant idea in greening efforts using advanced technology and working with several organizations.

Why did this idea arise? As we know that the Sahara desert becomes the world’s widest desert which looks so arid and hot. Therefore, this organization wants to turn the Sahara desert into a farm field that can benefit the community. So Sahara Forest Project is not only a company but also the best solution for the greening program. In this case, people who are living in the Sahara desert area will not find it difficult to find vegetables and fruits because they will choose a garden in the middle of the desert.

Sahara Forest Project hopes that the project will give more advantages in the future and they are going to build more and more green area where they are growing some plants, vegetables, and trees for the better desert environment. No wonder if the Sahara Desert will look so green a few decades from now on. This is a big scale project that embraces some organizations that supports the technology and facilities needed.

This is a proper step so that people will not feel suffocated to live in the desert area because some of the areas will be green. This is also important for our future generation so they will have a better environment to live and a sustainable farming system based on local production. Perhaps, the Sahara desert will be the lungs of the world in the future and this becomes a prevention of global warming. When people are busy to make our environments polluted, the Sahara Forest Project will provide a solution to balance the environment condition so that people can survive for a long period of time.

Sahara Forest Project would be the best solution to convert the hot Sahara desert into a beautiful green forest which gives a lot of benefits to the communities. This is a good way to provide a better environment and to prevent it from Global warming.

It’s Time to Stop the Dairy & Meat from Destroying the Climate

Vehicles are considered as the biggest contributor to greenhouse gas emission. However, it shows different fact. Today, meat and dairy companies are known to emit more greenhouse gases than the combined exhaust from all transportation. Some oil companies like Shell and Exxon are not the only companies that we have to worry about, but meat and dairy companies also give a bad impact toward our environment.

Some meat and dairy companies in France and Germany argue that milk and meat are needed today regardless of the greenhouse effect they release. The facts show that the needs of milk and meat in both countries are more than enough. In fact, they can also produce milk and meat for export to other countries. Not only the greenhouse effect, these meat and dairy companies also have made the loss of some small-scale farmers.

We know that feeding this planet is also important, but saving our environment is also necessary. The government and politicians has to take lead in reducing the carbon emissions, they only needs to make a regulation and reduce the numbers of meat and dairy companies and then divert it to small-scale family farmers. Certainly, this can also help people financially.

A sustainable farming system based on local production, extensive grazing and ecological farms will only be truly sustainable if we drastically reduce meat and dairy consumption. Doing this the demand for meat and dairy will decreased.

animal agriculture pollution

Other  solution is to stop consuming products from big meat and dairy companies, most people have opted to start a vegan diet, but is something that corresponds to a personal decision of each one, according to its economic possibilities and its ideological premises. There is no biological criterion that can say that a diet is better than another if it is balanced alternatives, but it will definitely have a big positive impact on the environment and climate change.
