Reduce your foodprint – Think.Eat.Save

by

Food waste (large version)Think.Eat.Save is the global campaign started in January this year to tackle the global food waste. Every year one third of all food produced (roughly 1.3 billion tonnes) is wasted unnessarily.

Here are their top ten tips to help you reduce your foodprint and your food bill:

  1. Shop smart – plan your meals and only buy what you need
  2. Buy funny fruit – fruit and veg goes to waste every year simply because it looks different
  3. Understand expiration dates – this infographic from love food hate waste is great.
  4. Zero down your fridge – Eat what you have before you buy more
  5. Say freeze and use your freezer – frozen foods remain safe indefinitely
  6. Request smaller portions – Help end food waste in the hospitality sector, and don’t be afraid to ask for only as much as you will eat
  7. Compost – compost your leftover fruit and veg
  8. Use FIFO (First in First Out) as a kitchen rule, and stop foods going off before you eat them
  9. Love leftovers – experiment with leftovers to make something new or try out a recipe from love food hate waste.
  10. Donate – non-perishable and unspoiled perishable food can be donated to local food banks, soup kitchens, pantries and shelters
