Love Food Hate Waste aims to raise awareness of the need to reduce food waste and help us take action. It shows that by doing some easy practical everyday things in the home we can all waste less food, which will ultimately benefit our purses and the environment too.
It takes water, energy, fuel and packaging to produce the food we all love and buy. Does it really belong in the bin? Half of the food we throw away can be eaten, keeping it out of the bin is good for our pockets and the planet combined.
Your food does its job best when it's on a plate ready to be enjoyed. Saving food saves money and helps to slow down global warming and deforestation. Reducing the amount of food that ends up in the bin also means you can say goodbye to unnecessary packaging waste. If we all make a few small changes and start using up the food we buy, together we can make a big difference.
What’s in it for you? If you are a family of four, you could be saving as much as £70 each month. So there’s a huge opportunity for all of us to cut what we spend at the checkout simply by saving more of the food we buy from the bin... and it’s a lot easier than you might think!
