Food Waste

  1. Check your cupboard, plan your meals and make a shopping list!
  2. Prepared and pre-packaged fruit and veg go off very quickly – so stay loose with these purchases!
  3. Beware of Buy One Get One Free (BOGOF) offers – only do it with non-perishable items.
  4. Check your labels to avoid waste – for use-by dates (and for packaging recycling info).
  5. Be friends with your freezer – freeze bread, freeze meals and organise your freezer food to reduce waste.
