Wasting Food Feeds Climate Change

The good food we throw away has an impact on our environment and contributes to climate change because we are wasting not only the food but the valuable resources that have gone into creating it too - from the land, fertilisers and water that was used for growing it to the greenhouse gases created from its production and transportation.

We can all do something to turn the tide on the shocking amount of food we throw in the bin in our homes. Let’s work together to save our food and our planet, ensuring every edible morsel is eaten.

    

    SAVE FOOD. BEAT THE BIN 

 

Simple changes really do add up if we all do something different today. Everyday. Forever.

It’s time to do more than just talking about the issue – let’s take action together. Each one of us, everywhere across the UK and the rest of the world.

Every day the equivalent of 20 million slices of bread are thrown away in UK homes. This could have fed breakfast to 10 million people, and a year’s worth of wasted bread slices, laid end to end, could circle the Earth from pole-to-pole 28 times!
