Food waste crisis in the UK

The UK is struggling with massive volumes of food waste – and the situation is probably not much different here. “Economically, food waste costs households hundreds of pounds a year and causes increased disposal costs to local authorities, pushing up council tax bills,” this BBC article says.

They add, “And environmentally, it is a disaster, because energy and resources are wasted in production only for the food to end up rotting in landfills where it produces methane – a potent climate-changing gas.” SOLUTIONS: don’t buy too much in one go, eat foods even after their ‘best before’ dates, and separate food waste to compost it at home.
