Love Food Hate Waste: Save money and recycle with your brown bin!
Sure, you can dispose of leftover food in your brown bin, but the best way to recycle food… is to eat it!
For anything you don’t or can’t finish though, Cherwell District Council provide an indoor caddy for food waste only (no plastic packaging or bags here, thank you) just line it with compostable bags or newspaper and you’re good to go, then pop the contents in the brown bin when it’s full along with your garden waste.
But, half of the food we throw away can be eaten!
Keeping it out of the bin is good for our pockets and the planet combined, and all it takes is a bit of planning to make food go further.
In most cases £60 worth of food A MONTH is being wasted - either left uneaten or in some cases still in its packaging!
Learning to love your freezer, using a portion planner and picking up tips on how to save money in the supermarket and buying just what you’re likely to eat will result in little wins to save you money.
