Less waste, more quality of life

One of the most important lessons that Expo 2015 aims to teach us is that there are enough resources for everyone if they are distributed better.

In 2015 it is imperative to understand that less is more, that if we, industrial countries, don’t waste, there is enough food to feed the planet, that the scarceness of resources in some countries is generally the result of a bad management of the resources in the capitalist countries. Less waste means more food and water for everyone.

The same concept applies to energy and the environment; less cars means more clean air; more vegetable gardens in the city mean less fuel spent on delivering vegetables and fruit to the cities; less energy spent on fridges to keep vegetables and fruit fresh during the delivery means a reduced carbon footprint.

In other words, less waste means a better quality of life.

The Swiss pavilions give one of the best lessons at Expo Milano 2015.

Switzerland built four pavilions –nothing too fancy, the focus is not on the architectural wow- each pavilion contains a certain amount of typical Swiss food: salt cubes, dried apple slices, coffee and water.

Each visitor is allowed to take as many samples as they want but the towers are not going to be refilled, the food and water supply should last until the end of Expo.

You can check online how much of each product is left.

The message is clear, the resources are not endless and if you learn to take and consume only what you need, there is enough for everyone.
