We actually have enough food to feed everyone on the planet, but it's unevenly distributed and 1/3 of all food produced is lost or wasted. This causes a huge waste of resources and contributes to climate change.
Wasting less food is a simple change with a HUGE impact!
Top tips for reducing your food waste
Plan your meals
Plan out your meals for the coming week and write a shopping list. This way you won't buy things that you may not use.
Learning to love leftovers is a great way to make sure nothing ends up in the bin. Have leftovers for lunch or dedicate a night a week to using up anything that's about to go off.
Share your food
If you can't get through a whole bottle of milk, a whole box of oranges or a whole loaf of bread before it goes off - why not share with friends and family? If you cook more than you need, invite a friend to dinner or drop off a delivery!
Cooking in batches enables you to use the whole bag/tin /packet, therefore reducing the risk of it going off in your fridge. Plus - you have delicious meals ready for a busy day!
The freezer is your friend
You can freeze all sorts, and its a great way to keep food fresh for a long time. Try freezing bread, curries, soup, stewed fruit, cakes, fresh herbs, berries, spinach and bananas.
Organise your store cupboards
Keep on top of what's in your cupboards. Whilst most dry goods last for ages, its a waste of money and space to forget about something for 5 years! This will also mean you don't accidently buy something you already have.
