EPISODE 14: Waste Not, Share More – Navigating the Path to Minimising Food Waste

Welcome to another episode of “Tread Lightly,” the Rainham Eco Hub podcast where we explore sustainable living and environmental switches. This week, we’re delving into the world of food waste and composting, seeking ways to minimise our carbon footprint in our busy lives.

Did you know that in the UK, the amount of food wasted annually could fill Wembley Stadium a staggering eight times? It’s a sobering statistic that highlights the urgency of addressing this issue. In today’s episode, we’ll be talking about the complexities surrounding food waste and discovering practical solutions for reducing it.

We’ll be shining a spotlight on innovative initiatives like ‘Too Good to Go’ and ‘Olio.’ These platforms are leading the fight against food waste by connecting consumers with surplus food from local businesses and individuals. By rescuing edible food that would otherwise end up in landfills.

As our conversation unfolds, we’ll explore the challenges and opportunities in incorporating sustainable practices into our daily lives. From meal planning to creative recipes using leftovers, we’ll share tips and tricks to help you make a positive difference in your household.

As always the conversation twists and turns on this complicated issue, but we share our thoughts on the importance of individual actions in combatting food waste.

So, grab your reusable coffee cup, settle in, and let’s dive into the world of food waste and composting on this episode of “Tread Lightly.” Because when it comes to tackling the enormity of food waste, every small action counts.
