Today’s leftovers = tomorrow’s treats
Finnish households throw away from 120-160 million kilograms of food every year – that’s 20-30 kilograms per person. In other words, 6% of our food ends up in the waste bin, which could be avoided by storing or preparing the food in a different way.
Savings: Buying one or two fewer meals each week can save you hundreds of euros per year.
Remember this: You’re the one who decides when food becomes waste. A change in attitude means that you’ll notice that surplus food is actually a treat. Dry bread can be turned into delicious French toast and a piece of dry cheese can add flavour to a soup or pasta sauce.
Reducing your carbon footprint: Replacing one meal a week with leftovers reduces your carbon footprint by 1%.
