The Food We Eat and the Food We Waste Working Group

The Food We Eat and The Food We Waste working group aims to reduce carbon emissions within Haddenham by promoting a  reduction in food waste and changes in food consumption.

Food Waste

Why reduce food waste?

Wasting food costs money and damages the environment!

Did you know the average family could save £100s each year just be reducing the amount of food they throw away?

If food waste were a country, it would be the third biggest carbon emitter in the world after the USA and China.

Buckinghamshire homes produce over 30,000 tonnes of food waste every year, enough to fill 250,000 wheelie bins. A shocking two thirds of that food waste is edible.

How to reduce food waste

Buckinghamshire Council has put together a food waste toolkit to help residents cut down on the amount of food that is wasted.
