In n Out the Fridge

I came upon this issue as I realize little things from my own home; how full the fridge was, mouldy uneaten fruit, rotten vegetable bags leaking to the floor under the fridge, rice in the bin, etc. As I did more research, it turns out the impact of this is much more than a smelly bin.

Giving food eyes and mouths creates a sense of compassion and respect for the food we eat and purchase every day. To raise awareness of the serious food waste impact, I also display how the negative emotions from neglected food cre- ates greenhouse gas footprint, eventually contributing to climate change.
