The Why.

We chuck away 4.5 million tonnes of edible food … and we are spending £60 a month for the privilege ...


In the UK alone, we're chucking away 4.5 million tonnes of edible food waste each year. That's enough to fill 38 million wheelie bins! Put those bins end to end and you could wrap them around the world with some to spare!

The excess alone costs us approx. £19 billion & 19 million tonnes of CO2. The average family of 4 could save about £60 per month by reducing their food waste.
