Wasting away

Wrap, which has been in the news recently for helping to coordinate the movement against unnecessary plastic bag use, is a great organisation fighting waste through influencing businesses as well as consumers to recycle more often and avoid sending so much to landfill. After all, consumers have some choice and influence through their spending decisions, but it’s the big retailers like the supermarkets who have the power to make large-scale changes. The site has a lot of good resources for SME’s (small to medium enterprises) to encourage recycling at work as well.

Another site I thought was really helpful is a site that has been created by WRAP, the Love Food Hate Waste site. It’s got recipes for using up leftovers, as well as storage advice and portion size tips (great for impatient cooks like me who hate following recipe books and measuring).
