More than one third of the average Australian household’s rubbish bin contains food waste. One in five bags of groceries ends up in the bin. That’s nearly $4,000 worth of food per household per year that can end up in landfill, where it breaks down and emits harmful greenhouse gases.
Food thrown into your bin ends up in landfill, which breaks down in ways that can create greenhouse gases (including methane), which affect air quality and our health. When we waste food, we also waste the resources used to grow it (i.e. water, soils, energy) plus energy used to process, package and transport it from markets to homes.
Eat more parts of your vegetables, such as skins, stalks and leaves.
