Love Food Hate Waste
Save food. Beat the bin.

Let us kick off a new trend – saving edible food rather than chucking it in the bin. 'Love Food Hate Waste' is on a mission to ensure all edible food is eaten across the world, starting with each of us in our own homes.
It takes water, energy, fuel and packaging to produce the food we all love and buy. Does it really belong in the bin?

Half of the food we throw away can be eaten, keeping it out of the bin is good for our pockets and the planet combined.

MAKE TOAST NOT WASTE

Did you know that you can toast bread straight from the freezer and still have the same delicious taste? Well it's true! Every day in the UK, 20 million slices of bread are thrown away - mostly because they are not used in time.

That means that the average person in the UK throws out more than half of a loaf of bread every month! You can keep bread for longer by putting it in the freezer and then use it straight from frozen to make toast.
