Food waste causes 8% of global carbon emissions.
The Shrewsbury Food Hub team does a great job of mopping up the 30% of food waste that occurs during food production and in retail. But 70% of food waste happens once the food has been bought and is in our own homes – in our fridges, bread bins and fruit bowls. To help combat this, we’ve launched our Taste with no Waste challenge to make a dent in food waste at home – and save money.
Did you know that food waste costs the average family £700 a year! Reducing the amount of food we waste is a no brainer for saving money. Plus the fact that food waste causes 8% of our carbon emissions – so reducing food waste reduces our carbon footprint and is really good for the planet.
Join the Taste with no Waste Challenge and make the most of the ingredients you buy.
