One out of five food items ends up in the bin – 760,000 tonnes of food are thrown away every year. Do your part to prevent waste, protect the environment and save money. It’s easy, and every little bit counts.
Make a shopping list
Stick to your shopping list to avoid impulse buys.
Bring your own shopping bag
Protect the environment by using fewer single-use bags.
Don’t go shopping hungry.
When you shop on an empty stomach, you’ll be much more tempted to buy things you don’t need.
Check the use-by date.
Pay attention to the use-by date so your food supplies don’t end up in the bin.
Only buy what you really need.
Make sure you can use up what you buy.
Repair before buying new.
Not every device that is broken is beyond repair and needs to be replaced right away.
Use a sandwich box and your own drinking bottle for your packed lunch.
They are a great alternative to tin foil, single-use bottles and cans when eating outside the home.
