On average, 30% (8.3 million tonnes) of food is thrown away in the UK every year, a massive £840 per household. If we all help stop this outrageous waste, the CO₂ reduction would be the equivalent to taking 1 in 4 cars off the road. In comparison, the USA throws out food to the value of $161 billion each year, that’s more than the GDP of many small countries. EcoFrenzy give ideas on how to cut food bills and waste, helping you save money and the environment.
