Well there was only ever one thing we could have blogged about today and that’s the ‘big’ news that food waste is a huge problem! Really? Who knew? Well……. never fear Tesco’s are going to help us sort it! That’s right they are going to stop offers on large bags of salad, educate us about what to do with leftover bread blah blah etc etc! Anyone else feel like this is a tad patronising?
According to the news Tesco wasted 28,500 tonnes of food in the first six months of the year!
Add to this that in general 1 in 10 bananas goes in the bin! 40% of apples are wasted and half (yes half) of bakery goods produced get binned!
Of course we are not solely blaming Tesco there is fault everywhere! But….. this simply is not good enough! Food is a HUGE privilege! For many people food is something that is not easily available to them! This waste (and the clever PR spin being used) is really sad! Lets hope Tesco’s latest measures make a difference!
Of course Team Pugh have a solution – just buy what you actually need! In the words of Uncle Sean – ‘take all you want but…… eat all you take’!!!!!
Today we are cross about food waste!
Food waste is never ok!
