UK households waste seven million tonnes of food every year, five million of which is edible.
To help with less food waste, try having last night's leftovers for lunch. Visit the love food, hate waste website for more information on how to cut down on food waste.
Composing food waste can produce fresh compost, which can then be used to improve the quality of your soil. Approximately 30% of households are already composting at home. Visit the Compost Guide for details on how you can do this too.
