National Zero Waste Week 2010

National Zero Waste Week takes place week beginning 6th September 2010.
This year’s theme is ‘Cooking for Victory’ in response to WRAPS “household Food and Drink Waste in the UK” report. The report shows we throw away 8.3 million tonnes of food and drink every year. Most of this is avoidable and could have been eaten if we had planned, stored and managed it better. This amount of food waste costs the average family in Britain £50 per month. More details here:

  1. Thanks Mrs Green, we will make an extra effort this week to use up the leftovers. Even the dog enjoys them! Our council (East Devon) now collect the food scraps – although I’m not sure what they do with them??? My workplace (a care home) gives all their food scraps to the local pig farm!

  2. Hi,

    We are participating in the Zero Waste Week with a special offer on the Easylunchboxes kit which make it easy to pack a waste free lunch for school, work and days out.

    Best Regards,
    Anna @ My Friendly Lunchbox – Products for a waste free lunch
