Food waste for thought

We spend so much time thinking about what makes it onto our plates, we need to consider what doesn’t

Just like oxygen and water, food is something that no creature, big or small, human or non-human, rich or poor, can live without. However, like most things that humans have come to control in our modern world, food has been made a commodity, and as a species, we spend massive amounts of money, time and energy on producing, selling, and buying edible produce.

If you take a walk down your local high street, you will probably come across more food and drink providers (supermarkets, takeaways or eat-in restaurants) than any other kind of business. At home, our fridges sit stufed with fresh goods, our cupboards are stocked full with tins, and our shelves are lined with grab-and-go snacks. We are able to order food at the click of a button, or by speaking for two minutes on the phone. If you turn on the TV or radio, you’re sure to see or hear a food-related advertisement within a mere five minutes of paying attention.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our jam-packed July issue. It’s always around this time of year that our staff get a bit thin on the ground, as we all head off on our summer holidays. We’ve had team members head to Ibiza, Madrid and Bali, armed with lists and recommendations, all seeking sun, sea and delicious vegan food. So to make sure you have your best summer yet, we’ve rounded up our top holiday suggestions (p42), got your sun care (p44) and snacks covered (p48) and Will Rankin has some brilliant travel hacks guaranteed to make your trip runs smoothly (p50). Closer to home, we have taken an in-depth look at the state of British wildlife (p106). I can remember, as a girl, walking through woods and seeing a huge array of animals — moles poking their heads out of mounds, timid rabbits darting back to their burrows and ponds lined with frogs. A walk through the countryside, sadly, can feel very different now — our wildlife is in serious and rapid decline with 11 per cent of our woodland species threatened with extinction. We uncover the issues affecting British nature and talk with those trying to save it. I’m also really excited to introduce our hilarious new columnist Claire Thrift (p58), who tells us about how her family are winning this BBQ season. Have a great month
