Zero Waste Week 2 – 8 September
It’s Zero Waste Week!

I’ve always been very careful not to waste food and avoid overpackaged food products. I also avoid buying ingredients that I might use for one recipe but that I’m unlikely to use again. I try to never leave food in a shared office fridge, as that can often lead to things being forgotten and going mouldy and no-one claiming responsibility….
