I bought the February issue of the Prima Magazine and on the back page there is a full page ad that says:
"A THIRD OF THE FOOD WE BUY IN THE UK ENDS UP BEING THROWN AWAY"
That is just crazy, when you think of all the starving people in the world. I am quite sure this not only happens in the UK but a lot of the countries around the world. That line certainly caught my attention and basically it directed you to visit http://www.lovefoodhatewaste.com/ to learn how to reduce your food waste.
The basic concepts are simple. Only buy what you are going to use. Check expiry dates when buying things, so you can make sure you have enough time to use the product. Freeze leftovers or take them for lunch the next day. Plan your menu before you go shopping, so that way you only buy what you need. It's not really rocket science, all it requires from you is to be organized and plan ahead of the game.
