Love Food, Hate Christmas Waste

Published: 5 Oct 2013



Tucked away in your fridge and/or fruit bowl your Fresh Pod is working hard to make sure your household or business helps to reduce the waste problem we have in the UK and the rest of the world.  
 
Every year it is estimated that we produce 3.3million tonnes of waste over the Christmas period. Of that, approximately £275 million is festive food, £169.00 per household according to the government waste body - WRAP. 
 
Barely a quarter of waste, packaging and uneaten food is likely to be recycled, most of the food ends up in landfill sites where it produces methane, a highly potent greenhouse gas. Dr Liz Goodwin, WRAP Chief Executive says, "This is only part of the picture. You also have to consider all the embedded energy used to produce, packages, and transport and deliver the food to our homes which produces the equivalent of at least 15 million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year." The cost of Christmas can't be measured by the length of your credit card bill in January.  
 
What a waste not to share the benefits of Fresh Pod. You could save your nearest and dearest hundreds of pounds next year by giving them a Fresh Pod 12 month kit for Christmas. 
 
Fresh Pod makes great stocking fillers for those hard to buy for - the elderly, singletons, students as well as friends and families.
