Be a Smart Shopper

Posted on 18 October 2018

The equivalent of nearly 20 rubbish trucks full of food is being thrown away every day in West Sussex. One of the best ways to stop this is to only buy what you need.

Before you hit the shops, plan ahead and draw up a menu for the week. 

Check your fridge and cupboards to see what you have already and then make a shopping list for the things you need and make sure you stick to your list. 

When you’re in the shops try to avoid bulk buying (or BOGOFs). Do you really need it? Will you use it? If the answer is no – put it back on the shelf! 

And remember it’s not just about wasting less. Throwing food away costs! It’s the equivalent of £20 per month per person or £70 per month for a family of four.
