Evidence shows that over 1/3 of all food produced globally goes to waste and that in most developed countries, over half of all food waste takes place in the home. This costs the average UK household an estimated £700 per year ($2,275 in the USA).
The annual cost of food wasted globally is $1 trillion and25% of the world’s fresh water supply is used to grow food that is never eaten. Nearly all the world’s one billion hungry people could be fed on less than a quarter of the food that is wasted in the US, UK and Europe!
So what can we do at home to reduce #FoodWaste?
