GIVE UP BINNING FOOD INSTEAD
CHALLENGE YOURSELF TO CHUCK LESS AND SAVE UP TO £60 A MONTH
Lent is here and for many people it’s an opportunity to try to give up bad habits. This year, rather than cutting out chocolate or curbing the coffee habit, we’re encouraging you to give up something else instead: putting food in the bin. Why? Because in the UK, 70% of all food thrown away comes from our homes. That’s more than 7 million tonnes of food and drink every year, the majority of which could have been eaten, shared and enjoyed.
Buying only what we need and using up all of what we buy is a great way to keep food out of the bin and honour the lent tradition of self-discipline and restraint. Doing our bit, no matter how small this might seem, could save each of us up to £60 a month. Our collective effort helps protect the environment and the land on which our delicious food is grown.
We've got plenty of amazing food facts, top tips and recipes to help you succeed in throwing away less over the next 40 days. Hopefully the changes you make will help you give up binning food for good.
