Go a week without food waste

What’s a week without food waste?

More than a quarter of food produced is wasted.

We’re asking people to make a pledge to try and go a week without wasting food. We’re not talking about peelings and banana skins, it’s about that half loaf of stale bread or leftovers in the fridge. Go ahead, give it a try.

Why should I do it?

Reducing food waste is one of the best ways to help the planet.

Food waste produces almost 10% of all global carbon emissions. Reducing food waste is one of the most effective climate actions we can take. Small changes can make a big difference and this is something you can do three times a day.

How do I do it?

Reducing your food waste is simple. 

Making small changes to how you shop, eat and manage food can have a big impact on your food waste and environmental impact. Planning your meals, writing a list and using your leftovers all help to cut down on food waste.  However, the solutions to food waste are not the same for everyone. See what works for you over a week. The best way is your own way!


It’s simple, it’s free and makes a real difference. We are challenging everyone to reduce food waste to combat climate change. Sign up to take part, join our monthly newsletter and a receive a digital copy of the Stop Food Waste pocket guide.
