You are what you throw away

Around a third of all food in the UK is thrown away. The process starts with the need for perfect, symmetrical and clean groceries and continues all the way through the process to failure to reuse left overs and throwing out stuff that’s a second past its sell by date. I couldn’t calculate it, but I’d hazard a guess that Casa Spinneyhead’s cost per capita in food waste is less than the national average of £420 per year, especially now we’ve started composting. (A matter for another time is just what the hell am I going to do with the compost when it matures? It’s not like we have a garden or anything.)
