1. Food and packaging

Wasted food?

On average, £420 worth of food per family is thrown away each year. Only buy and cook the food you really need by making a shopping list and weighing out the correct portions. Visit Love Food Hate Waste for lots of ideas and recipes to help cut out food waste.

Too much packaging?

Buy fruit and vegetables loose, it’s cheaper and less packaging means less waste.
