In Scotland we’re wasting a fifth of the food we buy every year – most of which could have been avoided.
Not only does wasting food cost money but it’s also bad for the environment. Every year we throw away 630,000 tonnes of food and drink, costing Scots over £1billion annually.
A new Scottish Government campaign is encouraging people across the country to reduce their food waste, to help save cash and the environment. By making a few small changes to cut your food waste you could save on average around £470 a year – which is an average of £40 a month.
