North London Waste Authority | Twitter food waste competition launches this week

 North London

Did you know that UK households throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food each year - most of which could have been eaten? When you throw away food you are not just wasting the food, but also the resources such as energy, fuel, time and water that went into growing, harvesting, storing, transporting and cooking the food. Each month, the average family throws away £60 of good food that was bought but not eaten. The good news is that it’s easy to reduce the amount of food you throw away (and save up to £60 a month).

ACR+ member North London Waste Authority (NLWA), through its ‘Wise Up To Waste Campaign’ has launched a two-week food waste awareness campaign across north London to help people prevent and reduce food waste.

NLWA are inviting people to take part in a Twitter competition to win a hard copy of the ‘North London Food Lovers Cookbook’. For competition details click here and play the ‘food waste game’ here.
