Stop Food Waste Day

How often do you load up your plate with food and never finish it? How often do you then throw away perfectly good food that has just passed it’s best before date?

Today is Stop Food Waste Day, a day that aims to teach people ways to reduce food wastage. It’s crazy to think that around a third of the food produced on Earth goes to waste — either it’s lost or goes bad! This day aims to raise awareness of this shocking statistic. While so many on Earth go hungry, the issue of food waste is only growing.


  1. Stock your refrigerator smartly

Humans can’t help it, our animal instinct is to buy more food than we need. However, if we want to reduce our food waste, it’s our job to fight the instinct! Instead of buying in bulk, plan what you’ll need for the week and make sure you have the means to store it.

  • Store food correctly

Food spoilage accounts for over 60% of food waste! Learn to store your perishables correctly or invest more heavily in frozen or non-perishable foods. Did you know that potatoes, tomatoes, and onion should never be refrigerated?

  • Eat the extras!

From leftovers to the skins on fruits and veggies, there is often so much more edible food in a meal than you think. Too often, skins on fruits, vegetables, and chicken are peeled off and go to waste — don’t miss out on the nutrients! Another great way to reduce your food waste is to feast on leftovers.
