Food waste is one of our most pressing challenges in the UK – globally we waste a third of everything we produce, and more than 53 million loaves of bread a year go in the bin in the UK alone. But it’s an issue we can ALL do something about, with a bit of knowledge, some handy recipes and being better prepared.
We had a chat with friends at Karma to discuss ways we can get to know more about food waste, and empowering ways to make a difference in our daily lives.
