UK households waste 6.5 million tonnes of food every year, 4.5 million of which is edible.
Reducing food waste isn’t only good for the planet, saving food can also save you money. On average, a typical family throws away £60 worth of food every month.
By planning meals before you go shopping and using up more of the food you have means you can reduce the amount of food you throw away and need to buy.
