Food waste

Cutting down on the amount of food that goes to waste saves you money and helps to slow down the climate crisis and deforestation. Every slice of bread, carrot and potato that you save from the bin can make a difference.

What can you do?

  1. Freeze bread – slices from a frozen loaf can then be defrosted as needed or toasted straight from the freezer.

  2. Check your cupboards and write a list before you go food shopping.

  3. Check your portions to avoid extras going to waste.
