Why do I need a Fridge Friend?
We’re throwing out tonnes of food each year at a great cost to both households, and the environment.
In fact, the average household throws out 25% of their groceries, which adds up to between $2,200 and $3,800 per household, per year, depending on which report you read. That hurts!
But the worst part of all? Food wastage is drastically hurting the planet too, contributing up to 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
But it’s not all bad news…
We can tackle climate change directly from our kitchens. Studies have shown reducing food wastage is the single most powerful thing you can do to impact climate change.
Your wallet and the planet will thank you!
