Do you know that the UK throws away around 9.5 million tonnes of food waste in a single year? That's despite 8.4 million people in the UK being in food poverty.
Whether it's buying too much food at the supermarket, forgetting about that lonely lettuce head at the back of the fridge, or even just plating up a bit too much food that is left uneaten, unfortunately, food waste is a bad habit that many of us have fallen into.
Not only is it damaging the planet, with it contributing to climate change and increased greenhouse gas emissions, it also packs a negative punch to our wallets; the average UK family spends £470 per year on food that's binned and not eaten!
