Reduce Food Waste

The most obvious benefit of using wonky fruit is that it helps to reduce food waste. By using fruit that might otherwise go to waste, we can reduce the amount of food that ends up in landfills, where it contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, reducing food waste is one of the most effective ways to address climate change.

Supports Sustainable Agriculture

Using wonky fruit can also support sustainable agriculture. When farmers are able to sell their wonky fruit, they can earn more money for their crops, which helps to support local agriculture. Additionally, reducing food waste can help to conserve natural resources and reduce the use of pesticides and other harmful chemicals in agriculture.
