FOODONOMICS HAS A MISSION - BUT WHY? 

 
UK households waste 6.5 million tonnes of food every year, 4.5 million of which is edible. 
These 4.5 million tonnes are enough to fill 90 Royal Albert Halls. 
It’s a lot, but we have the power to change this. 
 
 
It takes 100 buckets of water to produce 1 loaf of bread.  
To waste one is to waste the other. 
 
If you don’t get a chance to eat all of your bread, cut it into cubes and freeze it. You can use the leftovers to make croutons for soups and salads. Simply defrost the bread cubes, cover them in oil and salt and pop them in the oven until brown. 
 
 
Homemade food reduces your daily intake of preservatives, colourants, and additives. 
Glass storage instead of plastic, means less chemicals in your body! 
 
 
The energy created by recycling one banana peel can fully charge a smartphone twice.  
As food recycling produces biogas, which is collected and used to generate electricity. 
 
You can grow your pineapple tree. 
 
Rather than chucking the head of your pineapple in the compost bin, did you know you can grow a pineapple plant instead? This great tip not only reduces your food waste, but gives you something exciting and tropical to grow. 
 
1. Use toothpicks to suspend the pineapple head over a large glass jar filled with water and place in direct sunlight inside your home. 
2. Change the water every couple of days, making sure it’s touching the base of the pineapple head. 
3. You should notice some root growth after the first week. Once this happens, plant the head in a pot of compost and place it in a sunny spot. Water once a week.  
Such a lovely present for someone you love
