Each year UK householders waste on average 7 million tonnes of food waste. Of this waste, 4.2 million tonnes is avoidable, the equivalent of 6 meals every week for the average household. This wastage is estimated to cost £470 for the average householder and £700 for a household with children according to data from WRAP.
At ACE, as part of our Sustainable Communities Project we are trying to engage and communicate with communities about living sustainably, including food waste avoidance. To achieve this we run interactive workshops to engage local communities and provide practical tips and information.
So what can I do? ACE has come up with a series of simple steps that can be carried out to reduce your food waste and save your money!
1. Planning, Planning, Planning!
-Create shopping lists to make sure you only buy what you need and plan meals ahead.
-Love your leftovers – get creative! Come up with new recipes using leftover food.
2. Portion sizes
-Perfect portion sizes, only cook what you can eat! Check the labels on pasta and rice packets for further guidance.
-Make the most of your freezer! The freezer can be a useful way to store food you have not eaten and reheat when you need. Be careful to check the guidelines as to how long items can be frozen . (Guidelines)
-Store foods at the correct temperature, check food labels to ensure you are storing them at the right temperature so they stay fresher for longer.
-Use date labels on food to make sure you know when it will expire.
So why not give some of these quick and easy tips a go?! Not only will you be reducing your carbon footprint by avoiding food waste but you will also be saving money!

Waste is something that we all have and interact with on a daily basis, whether at home, in public or in the workplace. The United Kingdom sends more waste to landfills than any other nation in Europe, but why? By comparison to another large industrialised European nation such as Germany, Britain puts 20 million tonnes of waste into the ground annually compared to their 500,000 tonnes. At ACE we are trying to combat this unnecessary waste in Britain, we are trying to promote waste to be used as a resource and end our addiction to automatically putting things we don’t want or need immediately into landfills. When waste is put into landfills it emits methane, a highly damaging gas and is 20 times more detrimental to the environment than the infamous carbon dioxide. Processes such as, anaerobic digestion which turns sewage and food waste into a sustainable energy source. Britain discard 18 million tonnes of food waste each year, if the energy was harnessed from this waste it would be enough to heat 700,000 homes. Action for Community and Environment is promoting and exploring ways to recycle waste and use it as a resource in both the professional and home environments. ACE is holding and event in Holborn on the 3rd of April 2013 that will include a tremendous number of opportunities for companies to network and learn how to turn waste into an advantage. We invite anyone who wishes to change their life or business for the better and reduce their waste!live streaming film The Boss Baby 2017

People have complained about the inflationary use of the word Sustainability for years. Advertising Age has ranked it in their “Jargoniest Jargon” list of the year 2010. Yet, at 8Plastics Plus we decided to use it all over the shop. Why?
We think it’s a great word with an inclusive meaning that other words such as resilience or environmental awareness do not provide. We like the Brundlandt Commission’s definition of sustainability best: meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. For us, this includes the acknowledgement that resources are finite, that we have a duty to support life on earth in all its forms and that there are individual rights and community responsibilities.movie Kong: Skull Island
Unfortunately, it is this inclusiveness or, say, vagueness which invites its use in too many contexts. The problem seems to lie with the for-profit sector where marketing people have clocked on that prefixing the word sustainable to a product makes the consumer feel all fuzzy and good inside – and more willing to buy. Using sustainability to refer to bank accounts, shoes or to tokenistic environmental efforts of large multi-national corporations has eroded its meaning.
The trouble is that if people who really believe in sustainability move on from using it, the word loses further meaning and we lack a concept that describes what we are passionate about. Even if we move on to a new word, there is no guarantee that it will only be used in a context that we like. So, our message is: Reclaim it! Use the word sustainability in meaningful ways to balance out all the empty messages that we are bombarded with. Make sure to define it so that people know what sustainability means to you and then start winning over the world for your cause.
Go on, spread the word, future generations need you!
