Focusing on Food Waste
More than 35% of global CO2 greenhouse gases come from the production and distribution of food. By preventing unnecessary food waste, we can greatly reduce the impact our eating habits are having on climate change.
In West Sussex, food waste makes up a staggering 40% of the average household general waste bin. However, up to 70% of that waste can actually be avoided!
With Food Waste Action Week taking place from 4 to 10 March 2024 (TBC), now is an excellent time to forge new habits by wasting less while also reducing food bills.
The West Sussex Waste Partnership is tackling food waste through various trials and initiatives. It is also undertaking trials of separate food waste collections to further reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.
If you have excess or leftover food you can find details on ways to share it and avoid your food going to waste by visiting Food Rescue campaign.
