It’s time to confess…How much food do you really throw out each week? Apparently, we chuck away the equivalent of one in five bags of groceries, worth up to $2500 every year!
As it’s global Stop Food Waste Day (26 April), we’ve pulled together five of our top-rated food storage products to help you avoid food waste, especially given rising prices, and they’re all under $30. A great investment, as proper food storage is one of the biggest ways to reduce what you throw out. Your food will keep fresher for longer and you’ll have loads of lovely leftovers for future meals!
Plus, food waste just isn’t something we can afford, not just for household spending but for the planet. According to these facts, our wasted food production and disposal produces the same amount of annual emissions as Australia’s highest-emitting coal-fired power station. Even crazier, throwing away just one burger wastes the same amount of water as a 90-minute shower! The Australian Government is determined to tackle the issue, intending to halve our food waste by 2030.
So here are five favourite food storage products to help reduce your food waste and food bills! We love these products because they’re eco-friendly (of course) and are tried and tested by you with fantastic reviews. So, stock up and start saving – it’s free delivery Australia-wide with $40 spend!
