How to reduce food waste this Christmas

Posted by Kim Wallace on 22nd December 2015

Last week you heard from Seumas MacInnes from Cafe Gandolfini about a great way to use up leftover turkey to make a fantastic soup.

But there's also some great resources on Greener Scotland that can help you to plan, shop, cook, store and recycle your way to a festive season with as little food waste as possible. Not only does this reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and reduce emissions through the whole food production chain, if you take these simple principles and use them all year, you could save you up to £470 a year. That's next year's present money sorted, surely?

Saving money and reducing food waste

As you get ready to spend time with friends and family over the next few days, take a few minutes to think about how you'll make sure all the food you buy and cook will get eaten up.
