Every bit of wasted food has an environmental impact. Transport, fuel, water, energy – it all adds up. And while governments and businesses have an important part to play, food waste in UK households produces nearly 25 million tonnes of CO2 every year.
For the planet and for future generations – we need to save food from the bin by changing the way we buy, store, and use it. This is the core message coming out of this year’s Food Waste Action Week campaign, 7-13 March 2022, which is being supported by television presenter Gregg Wallace.
Gregg Wallace, TV presenter, said “No one hates seeing good food go to waste more than I do, and often it’s simple changes in how we store food that make the biggest difference. That’s why I’m delighted to support this year’s Food Waste Action Week and Love Food Hate Waste. The fact is, we are all responsible for the vast majority of food waste that happens in the UK – 70% – so we really need to be part of the solution for the sake of the planet. And with food prices going up and other pressures on disposable income, the savings you’ll make to the family budget by wasting less food are significant.”
