My Rescue Bananas

stuff like this drives me mental, for too many reasons to count. it’s why i founded OLIO, an app connecting neighbours with each other and also volunteers with local shops so that surplus food can be shared- not binned! we’ve rescued nearly 300,000 items of food in 18months. bigger picture, the problem is everyone hates food waste, but few are willing to take the extra 10 seconds required to share their food while it’s still good (and before you blame the stores, more than 50% of food waste takes place on the home — though retailers aren’t saints of course, as this post indicates). mass consumer behaviour and mindset change is required to tackle food waste at scale. do check it out though and start sharing www.olieox.com
