Food waste action week 2022
Think before you throw away that last piece of food, could you re-use it before throwing it out? Today marks the start of a week of initiatives aimed at reducing the UK’s and then global food waste.
Around a third of the food produced globally is lost or wasted and it’s having a real impact on climate change, contributing 8–10% of total man-made greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
That is why Love Food Hate Waste is dedicating a whole week of action to raising awareness of the environmental consequences of wasting food and promoting activities that help to reduce the amount of food we waste.
The aim of Food Waste Action Week is to create lasting change that helps to deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goal of halving global food waste by 2030.
