Food waste action week

Wyre Forest District Council are supporting Love Food Hate Waste’s Food Waste Action Week campaign.

This year, the campaign is encouraging everyone to, “Choose What You’ll Use” and buy fruit and vegetables loose instead of packaged. Research from Love Food Hate Waste has shown that we could reduce food waste by 60,000 tonnes just by buying loose fruit and veg!

Research has found food waste makes up 35% of black bins in Worcestershire, of that 69% was avoidable and 43% still in its packaging! Food waste action week runs from 18 – 24 March. You can find more details on the website.
