the recently launched love food, hate waste website reminded me that here in the uk, a third of the food we buy ends up being thrown away. most of this is food that can be eaten, not just banana skins and tea bags.
for every three bags of food we carry home, we are effectively dropping one straight into the bin. as well as being a waste of money this is also a huge waste of resources.
as we approach christmas, a time when many of us are buying more food than usual, it is particularly important that we think about how to ensure that we are not wasting food
