Thermomix Sustainable Cooking Series

Reduce Food Waste. Reduce Single Use Plastic. Reduce Landfill. Reduce Greenhouse Emissions.

Its World Earth Day on April 22 and the official theme for 2024 is ''Planet Vs. Plastic''. We can all play a part in helping EARTH.ORG to reduce single use plastics by buying food for our pantry from bulk wholefoods stores, avoiding fruit & veg wrapped in plastic, BYO cup when grabbing a takeaway coffee and creating some of your favourite takeaway meals at home.

Producing, transporting and disposing of single-use packaging for take away food requires large quantities of energy and raw materials. Those materials release emissions as they break down in landfill or the environment, or are burned.

But it’s not just single use packaging that is an issue. When we opt for take away over using up food in the pantry, fridge and freezer, we waste food (and money).

Did you know we waste more than 7.7 million tonnes of food across Australia and New Zealand each year? And that Australian households waste on average up to $2500 per year?

According to OzHarvest, wasting food wastes everything including all the precious resources that go into producing it: water, land, energy and money. In fact, food waste contributes to 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

The good news is that food waste at home is mostly avoidable. This April, let’s start by cutting back on take away meals to reduce single use plastic, food waste and money and instead make more meals at home.
