    We don’t really tend to think of food waste as being an energy store – but that’s exactly what it is. Back in school you may have learned that energy is neither created or destroyed, it is simply changed from one form to another.

    That means that as our food is grown, harvested, processed, packaged and transported the amount of energy that has gone into it keeps rising. If we then throw out that food, or part of that food, then the energy is wasted. When we put food into the brown bin, it goes off to be industrially composted. This seems like a good use of unused food.

    However, the process results in a huge loss of energy (primarily as heat). In fact, every year the average bin contains enough unrealised energy to produce 500 baths, 3,500 showers or 5,000 hours of television – and that’s just one bin!!!

    So let’s aim to reduce that 80% of avoidable food waste and reduce the amount of energy being lost.
