There are many things you can do to reduce your household food waste. Here are some ideas to get you started:


  • Buy funny-looking produce: Wonky carrots are still delicious
  • Buy directly from producers: They are less likely to discard imperfect looking produce and tend to bring to the market only what they will sell
  • Eat leftovers: Save money on lunch!
  • Pickle: Both fruits and vegetables can be preserved through an easy pickling process
  • Preserve produce: Turn wilting vegetables into soups, wilting fruits into juice…
  • Discover recipes for using up leftovers: That risotto can become arancini, those leftover egg whites can be added to an omelet, and those leftover miscellaneous vegetables: a hearty soup…
  • Some food waste is unavoidable: so why not set up a compost bin for fruit and vegetable peelings?
