30% of global greenhouse gases come from producing our food – we can’t afford to waste it.
It’s the first Love Food Hate Waste (LFHW) Food Waste Action Week 1st – 7th March this year and we have partnered with LFHW to help share simple tips and tricks throughout the week to reduce your food waste and fight climate change.
Don’t believe us? Well, if we stopped throwing away the 710,000 tonnes of potatoes we waste every year in our homes, it could stop 330,000 tonnes of CO2e from going into the atmosphere!
When we throw away food that could have been eaten we are not just wasting food but the valuable resources that went into making it including water, land and greenhouse gases. That’s why during Food Waste Action Week (1st – 7th March 2021), we’re calling on everyone to understand the true value of food and to consider the impact of their behaviours.
You can start by whipping up tasty leftover recipes, using up edible broccoli stalks and potato peelings, storing food the correct way, and spreading the word to ensure that no food that could have been eaten goes to waste.
70% of all wasted food in the UK comes from our homes. That’s 4.5 million tonnes of tasty food wasted, and we can save every last crumb! Join Love Food Hate Waste (opens in a new tab) and spread the word about how to waste less food. Everyone can make a difference, and something as small as saving your leftovers and encouraging friends and family to do the same means you’re doing your part.
We have some tips below and you can find even more on the Love Food Hate Waste website (opens in a new tab) so you can get involved and help our planet.
