It's time to change our ways

Did you know that throwing out food is one of the biggest contributors to climate change? When we waste food, it’s not just the food we’re wasting, it’s the resources it takes to produce it – like water and the land that could have been cleared to create the space to grow it, too. With a massive 25-30% of global greenhouse gases coming from the food system alone, it’s safe to say that we need to do something about it and be more eco-friendly.

A large amount of the food every one of us buys ends up in the bin – and it took a LOT of environmental resources to get that food into your kitchen. Check out these facts on what’s really going into what’s on (or off) your plate.

Take Action

It’s the little things that can have the biggest effect on reducing the human impact on climate change – and with just a few tweaks to how we shop, store and cook our food, together we can work towards a better future for our planet.

70% of all wasted food comes from our homes

It’s a common misconception that most food is wasted by grocery retailers, or during the food production process. But in reality in the UK, 70% of the food that gets thrown away comes from our homes – which amounts, on average, to over £700 worth of food that could have been eaten per family, every year. Imagine! But it’s not all doom and gloom. Every one of us can reduce the amount of food we throw away in small steps every day – one slice of bread, one potato, or one banana at a time – to do our bit to reduce the impact we have on our planet.
