Guilt-free feasting and splurging
ICAEW has come up with some practical ideas to help you #watchyourwaste.
We throw away enough food to fill Wembley Stadium nine times every year. That's 7.2 million tonnes, and almost a fifth of the food we buy1. We challenged One Moorgate Place Executive Chef Adam Daniels to come up with two delicious recipes using food waste. Impress your dinner guests with these gourmet dishes – and then tell them 90% of what they just ate ordinarily ends up in the bin.
Shop 'til you drop
Give the gift of warmth, shelter or empowerment to a refugee. The people at Choose Love give you the opportunity to buy practical items (like tents, nappies and sleeping bags) for refugees, and 100% of profits go to refugees. Do your shopping, leave with nothing, and make the world a better place.
If you've got any practical ways in which you can avoid or use waste in an innovative way, tell us your ideas.
