8.3 million tonnes of food is wasted from our homes in the UK every year and 40% of that is fruit and vegetables. Whether we are cooking too much, letting food go past its best as we don’t know how to store it, or are unsure of what the date labels mean, throwing away the odd bit of food is easily done. But little by little all this waste really adds up, over a year the average family throws away £680 of food shopping – equivalent to an annual utility bill. That’s a lot of food!
Wasted food isn’t just a waste of money it has a big impact on the environment too. Most of it ends up in landfill sites where it rots and releases methane, a damaging greenhouse gas. Throwing away food is also a huge waste of the energy, water and packaging used in its production, transportation and storage. If we all stopped wasting the food which could have been eaten, it would have the same CO2 impact as taking 1 in 4 cars off UK roads.
