Give food waste a fright events
What’s scarier than witches, ghosts and ghouls at Halloween? How about the 18,000 tonnes of edible pumpkin that ends up in the bin each year. That’s the same weight as 1,500 double decker buses!
● Seven out of ten pumpkins carved for Halloween don’t get eaten*
● That’s around 15 million perfectly edible pumpkins thrown in the bin every year – enough to make a bowl of pumpkin soup for everyone in Britain*
● Laid end to end, the uneaten pumpkins would stretch over 2,500 miles – all the way from the UK to Azerbaijan, where pumpkin pancakes are a national dish*
