World Environment Day 5 June 2013. PDF  | Print |  E-mail

The World Environment Day theme for 2013 is Think.Eat.Save.

The aim of this year’s theme is to let humankind become more aware of the environmental impact of food waste and loss across the food supply chain.
In the past a lot less food was wasted. The wastage started 50 years ago with the over-abundance of products and very low cost of disposal; this caused that humankind paid less attention to the food waste they generated.

Think.Eat.Save is an anti-food waste and food loss campaign that encourages humankind to reduce their food print. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), every year 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted. This is equivalent to the same amount produced in the whole of sub-Saharan Africa. At the same time, 1 in every 7 people in the world go to bed hungry and more than 20,000 children under the age of 5 die daily from hunger.It is important to look to the bases of Islamic teachings and take our guidance from there with regard to wastage. What does a basic Islamic teaching say about wastage?Allah (TA) says:....and waste not by extravagance. Verily, He (Allah) likes not Al-Musrifûn (those who waste by extravagance) ( Quran 6:141) The Prophet (SAW) said: Eat, drink, cloth yourselves and give alms without extravagance or conceit (Bukhari).
