Love Food Hate Waste

Every year in the UK we throw away a staggering one third of all the food we buy. Love Food Hate Waste – a campaign from WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) – highlights the fact that wasted food is a waste of money and a major contributor to climate change. And the most frustrating thing is that most of what we throw away could have been eaten – it's not just peelings, teabags and bones. The Love Food Hate Waste website provides delicious recipes to make the most of the food in our fruit bowl, fridge and cupboards, handy hints for storing food, surprising facts on what can be frozen and much more... there is something for everyone, whether you are a keen cook and organiser or more spontaneous. Visit Love Food Hate Waste for more ways to love food and reduce our food waste.

Great post Tulip.... I so agree that those of us in Western countries waste so much food. I have a nifty gadget called the foodsaver which vacuum packs food or left-overs. It's more than paid for itself in the 3yrs I've had it.
