Meet some of the UK’s food waste warriors

According to the sustainability charity Wrap, around 10 million tonnes of food has been binned in the UK every year since 2012. That’s enough loaves of bread to almost fill Wembley Stadium; enough milk to fill 230 Olympic-sized swimming pools; and the weight of 365 blue whales in bananas alone. Food waste within homes accounted for more than 70% of this, and yet in a recent survey by Wrap, nearly 60% of people said they never, or rarely, wasted food – we’re in denial!

Meet some of the food waste warriors who are tackling the problem head on.
