Almost 50% of the total amount of food thrown away in the UK comes from our homes. We throw away 7 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year in the UK, and more than half of this is food and drink we could have eaten. This wasted food costs the average household £470 a year, rising to £700 for a family with children, the equivalent of around £60 a month*
Blimey! By reducing your food waste you could probably have a lovely weeks holiday by the sea!
