第1篇 Clean Your Plate Campaign 光盘行动 The campaign, Clean Your Plate Campaign, is initiated by nongovernmental organizations and activists, which urges people to save food by not wasting anything on the dining table. The campaign, launched on weibo, is soon joined by millions of netizens across China in a bid to curb food wastage and appreciate the virtue of being thrifty even in times of plenty.

Every Chinese student is taught this Tang Dynasty poem: Farmers weeding at noon, sweat down the field soon. Who knows food on a tray, thanks to their toiling day. In the Chinese original, the word "food" receives emphasis, literally meaning: "every grain on the plate is an embodiment of hard work". Chinese parents would use this to teach their children not to waste food because it is the product of farmers' exhausting labor under the scorching sun or in rainstorms. Yet, when we dine out, we'll be astounded by the amount of food squandered. The estimated annual wastage of grain in China is estimated to be 50 million tons, enough to feed about 200 million people for one year.

The campaign to finish up one's plate, or "guangpan" in catchy slang, is meant to drill some common sense into a vanity-conscious society that food is meant for your mouth and too much of it will not make you an important person. People from across the social divide should support the Clean Your Plate Campaign.
