Reduce Food Waste

The Issue

Brighton & Hove residents waste 24,000 tonnes of food every year - about 260kg per household. It's a problem that stays hidden in our bins, costing us and the environment in the process.

Over 60% of our food waste is avoidable while much of the rest is compostable.

Take Action

You can make a difference every day with some simple strategies for your kitchen, fridge and shopping basket. Through mindful meal planning, proper portions, smart storage and some leftover love, anyone can become a no-waste ninja.

The Benefits

Tackling food waste can save up to £60 a month on food bills, but that's not all. It means that the natural resources, energy, and human effort taken to feed us are not needlessly lost along the way.

Using up food is also satisfying, with a sense of savvy thriftiness that is almost as valuable as the money saved not wasting it!
