That means up to £60 worth of food that we buy ends up in the bin.
Wasting food is a habit we can easily break, by buying what we need and using up what we have means less goes to waste.
Whether you shop daily, weekly or monthly, planning what you eat and buying only what you need, is an easy way to save you money as well as time.
The freezer is not just for frozen food but it can keep your fresh food, fresher for longer! From bread, cheese, meat and even potatoes all these can go in the freezer to be saved for another day.
‘Use by’ and ‘best before date’ labels are there to help you keep track of your food’s safety and quality. A lot of food could be rescued as the ‘best before date’ is about quality, so food past it’s best before date is safe to eat after the date.
Common types of food that are wasted are basic staples like bread, rice, potatoes and pasta. Give the portion calculator a go to see how you can make perfect portions with your next meal.
There are always odd and ends left in the fridge, whether it’s half a bag a salad, chunk of cheese or quarter of a tub of yoghurt. So instead of throwing them in the bin, get them used up in a tasty leftover recipe.

@DeborahKWroe It is because we recently updated the app and when adding a new app to the Google Play store, it has to be for Android versions 8 and above. Sorry you can't use it
@DeborahKWroe Hi Deborah, which version of Android are you using? You may need to update your operating system. It is only available for versions 8 and above - a limitation of the Google Play store unfortunately.
@petefillery @tetrapak @RochdaleOnline @recycle_now @mcrfoe @MENnewsdesk @aplastic_planet @friends_earth @TerraCycleUK @guardianeco Hi Pete, Due to a volatile paper and card recycling market, there have been some issues with accepting Tetra Pak over the past few months. I can confirm that we can now accept Tetra Pak in your paper and card bin. We will update the R4GM website shortly. Thanks
