Why Save Food

Your food does its job best when it's on a plate ready to be enjoyed. Saving food saves money and helps to slow down global warming and deforestation. Reducing the amount of food that ends up in the bin also means you can say goodbye to unnecessary packaging waste. If we all make a few small changes and start using up the food we buy, together we can make a big difference.

What’s in it for you? Use up what you buy and you could save your household £38 a month. If you are a family of four, you could be saving as much as £60 each month. Throwing good food away costs the average person in Scotland around £200 a year, and the average household £460. So there’s a huge opportunity for all of us to cut what we spend at the checkout simply by saving more of the food we buy from the bin... and it’s a lot easier than you might think!

Turning less food into rubbish can also make a real difference to the world around us – and that’s something we can all get on board with. Read on to find out more about why and how to be leaner and greener, and what you could do with the money you’d save.
