We are supporting the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste

Monday Sep 25, 2023

Friday 29th September is the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste — a day to shine a light on one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.

Saving food from going to waste has been named as the leading solution for solving the climate crisis, so this week, we’re focusing on the small steps we can take to make a difference.

 

Did you know that every time you save a Surprise Bag with Chelmsford Star Co-op, 2.5kg of CO2e gets avoided? It might seem like a small step in the scheme of things, but when you multiply one person’s effort, that impact adds up. So far, we’ve saved 11,784 Surprise Bags. And in doing so, we’ve avoided 29,460kg of CO2e. A lot of small steps added up into something big.

So on this week of awareness, we have one simple message: every time you take a step towards a greener planet, your choices make a difference. It matters. Thank you.
