WRAP‘s third annual Food Waste Action Week campaign will take place from the 6th to the 12th March 2023.
The theme for 2023 is ‘Win. Don’t Bin.’ and the campaign will demonstrate how valuable food is in our lives, how it unites people, and how using up everything we buy saves money, time and the planet.
4.5 million tonnes of edible food is thrown away each year by UK households. Shockingly, 25% of this wasted food is due to cooking, preparing or serving too much – this costs UK households £3.5 billion each year.
The campaign aims to increase citizens’ confidence in ‘using up leftovers’ by promoting a range of skills that can be easily adopted but potentially have the greatest impact on reducing food waste in the home. These simple behaviours can save time and money, as well as reduce the impact of food waste on climate change.
