Let’s Keep Crushing It OK, UK?

If there’s good to be found in Lockdown, it’s that many of us have had time to stop, pause and think about how we do things. Through the doom and gloom, we’ve had good times on video calls, more mealtimes together with families and housemates and across the UK, we’ve wasted a third less food than we usually would. We’ve saved leftovers, written detailed shopping lists containing only what we need, and we’ve baked a LOT of banana bread. And though lockdown is easing and life is beginning to go back to a form of normal, here at Love Food Hate Waste we’re on a mission to help you to Keep Crushing It and reduce food waste for good. So, here’s how you can do just that and help the planet and your purse strings.

How Food Waste Affects Climate Change

With over 4.5 million tonnes of edible food wasted from UK homes every year, it’s not just our bank accounts that are affected by food waste – it’s our planet too. Food production is big business - the process of growing, making, distributing, storing and cooking our food uses loads of energy, fuel and water and this process generates 30% of the world’s CO₂e greenhouse gas levels. With 90% of the UK’s fruit and 50% of vegetables coming from overseas, distribution alone means your green beans could have travelled all the way from Kenya, and your grapes from Greece or Egypt! And the huge amount of resources that goes into the production of all this food amounts to the same amount of CO₂e as 4.6 million return flights from London to Perth! So really, it’s a no-brainer to keep as much food out of the bin as possible, and to start wasting less and saving more – both money and the planet.
