The Food Waste Epidemic
Double Decker Buses
tonnes of food waste
Did you know? The amount of food waste that was sent for Waste To Energy Incineration in SIngapore is approximately 539,000 tonnes in 2020, a whopping 81% of the total food waste generated that year. That is equivalent to the weight of approximately 42,500 double-decker buses! And the worrying fact is, Waste To Energy Incineration is far from being environmentally friendly.
Between 0.7 and 1.7 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of organic waste.
At Social Planter, we focus on innovating ways that social and environmental responsibility can interface with current economic models that produce food. While authorities are striving to regulate and prepare solutions, Social Planter aims to aggregate communities to come together to do our part in solving problems for the world we live in.
Our mission is to decentralize and simplify food and soil growing to create a truly scalable and circular economy where food waste can be used to produce more food in a self-sustaining cycle.
How we do it?
On unused residential space
Technologies to convert waste into soil
Connecting people to knowledge and space
Grow edible plants out of soil
While real estate in Singapore is considered one of the most expensive in the world, there is ample space within the community to use for edible food growing. Social Planter brings together people, grassroots support, and funding opportunities to make these projects happen on a large scale. The most difficult issue of growing is to ensure the knowledge and best growing medium available to the community is always available to the projects.
