National Zero Waste Week takes place the week beginning 6th September 2010.
This year’s theme is ‘Cooking for Victory’ in response to the Waste Resources Action Programme’s (WRAP) “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.
