In this episode, we talk about all the ways you can reduce food wastage in your own home. According to AusHarvest, the government estimates that food wastage in Australia costs the economy a whopping $20 billion annually! There’s over five million tonnes of food that ends up as landfill, from households and the commercial sector. These figures become a little close to the heart, when it’s also revealed that 35% of the average household bin is full of food wastage. For this reason, it’s time to play your part in reducing this wastage, and in turn saving yourself a lot of money.

With a bit of meal planning, you’ll notice that you will no longer have those items that sit in the cupboard until after their use by date. There are so many ways to save food, that you would otherwise just toss into the rubbish bin. By planning ahead, you’ll be saving yourself a lot of money, time and also doing your bit for the environment!
