The waste and recycling advisory body (WRAP) says:
“Consumers are being encouraged to waste less food, after new figures from WRAP show that £13 billion of edible food was needlessly thrown away from homes in 2015. The latest results show that 7.3 million tonnes of food is wasted, which if prevented, would have the environmental benefit of taking one in four cars off the road”
Here at Go Local Food, our vegetables are not plastic wrapped, they are protected by mud, which means our produce lasts longer (definitely tastier too!). Not only that, they are locally produced with few road miles.
