Abu Dhabi: Worshippers at every mosque in the United Arab Emirates capital were given a Ramadan message, prepared in cooperation with the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD), advising them to think twice before cooking up too much food. EAD is a government body that aims to create a greener planet. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, every year 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted around the world, an amount equal to total food production in sub-Saharan Africa. Worshippers were told that reductions in food waste translate directly into deep cuts in manufacture and use of fertilizer and pesticides, and avoidance of transportation fuel burn and resultant emissions.
