Food waste Action Week 2023

06 March 2023

Monday 6 - Sunday 12  March

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has announced its third campaign week, concentrating on food waste.

We're working to halve food waste by 2030

4.5 million tonnes of edible food is thrown away each year by UK households. Shockingly, 25% of this wasted food is due to cooking, preparing or serving too much - this costs UK households £3.5 billion each year. 

That is why Love Food Hate Waste is dedicating a whole week of action to shining a light on how simple behaviours to reduce food waste can save time and money. This will ultimately reduce the impact of food waste on climate change.

Fairtrade Fortnight - Second week to 12 March

06 March 2023

Monday 27 February - Sunday 12 March

Fairtrade Fortnight


This Fairtrade Fortnight, join us in spreading a simple message:


making the small switch to Fairtrade supports producers in protecting the future of some of our most-loved food and the planet. 

Did you know?

Coffee, bananas and chocolate could soon be much more difficult to buy.

Climate change is making crops like these harder and harder to grow. Combined with deeply unfair trade, communities growing these crops are being pushed to the brink. 

But here’s the good news.  

More people choosing Fairtrade means extra income, power and support for those communities.

By making the small switch to Fairtrade, we can all support producers in protecting the future of some of our most-loved food and the planet.

Fairtrade – a way to support those who have done the least to cause Climate Change but are most impacted by it. Fairtrade brings Social Justice into the Environmental arena.

Let’s all buy a Fairtrade product  to help people to help themselves and cope with  the climate related issues they face.  Whether it’s a flowers for our homes or a cup of tea at a club / society we belong to – a walking club, a gardening group, birdwatching, sailing, cycling, photography - Fairtrade is a positive way to make a difference to people’s lives.
