Are you keen to reduce food waste this Christmas?

Did you know that in New Zealand nationally we waste $872 million per year on food that we buy and throw away uneaten?

Christmas is often a time of food excess so now could be a good time to think about what and why we waste as much as we do?

Love food hate waste is a group dedicated to help reduce waste. They have found that the two most common reasons that we throw away food is because:

  • We don’t eat up all our leftovers
  •  Some food goes bad because it hasn’t been stored properly

The main foods that we tend to waste the most are bread, leftovers, potatoes, apple, chicken and bananas.

This food waste in NZ is producing 325,975 tons of carbon emissions. To offset this we would need to take 118,107 cars off the road for one year or plant 130,390 trees.

Learn 9 hot tips from Love Food Hate Waste on how you can save money on food and also while you are on their website you might like to sign up for 5 free online coaching sessions to help you reduce your food waste, save money and preserve the health of our planet.
