The average household spends £424 a year on food that goes into the bin. Throwing food to landfill produces methane which is 20 times more powerful than CO2. You can cut down your waste by:
- choosing food with less packaging
- cutting down food waste
- compost any waste food
You should also try to buy food that is produced locally. For information on local producers click on Local Produce above.
