UK households waste 6.7 million tonnes of food each year…1/3rd of everything we buy! This amounts to £420 per household, per year. When factoring in all of the resources going into the production and transport of this food, this wastage is massively costly to the environment as well as to us.
Once we’re conscious of this, it’s easy to make a little extra effort to use up food before it goes bad or not to buy more than we’ll use. To offer a little inspiration, I have put together a food waste cookbook with recipes using some of the most wasted ingredients. Check out the whole thing here or wait out for more recipes to come!
