Love Food Hate Waste
Who doesn't love food? NSW households send an average of 800,000 tonnes of food a year to landfill. When food waste breaks down in landfill it produces methane – a potent greenhouse gas.
Wasted food also means wasted resources. The water, energy, materials and fuel used to harvest, transport, process, package, distribute and market wasted food is also wasted.
The EPA Love Food Hate Waste Program is raising awareness about the food we waste and the impact it has on our environment. Food waste affects our environment in many ways – did you know scraping your leftovers into the bin contributes directly to climate change?
