*Globally we waste around 1.6 billion tonnes of food every year*
*Global food waste could potentially rise by a third by 2030*
*More than 50% of food waste in the UK comes from households*
*The average household wastes around £470 of food a year*
To me, these are scary figures and indicative of a problem that really doesn’t seem to be getting much better but also doesn’t have an easy solution. This post is going to be looking at what we as individuals can be doing to help prevent and reduce the travesty of beautiful food being thrown away every day.
