Tons of food is wasted

Did you know that around 100 million tons of food is wasted annually in the EU? If nothing is done, food waste could rise to over 120 million tons by 2020. Wasting food is not only an ethical and economic issue, it also depletes the environment of limited natural resources. This is something I try to have in the back of my head every time I shop for food. My best tip for food shopping is to never do it hungry, you tend to buy things that you might not need. Things that you will not finish before the expiration date has run out. Another tip that is also kind to your wallet is to have a look at the short expiration date counter, if you, like me, normally just shop for the day you can make quite a bargain.

This post is presented in collaboration with IKEA and their show Vad gafflar ni om. Over fifteen episodes, Martina Haag and Mogge Sseruwagi investigates situations that stops us from truly connecting with each other. In today’s episode, Martina and Mogge investigate how we can decrease food waste, and why we’re so scared of eating food with a past expiry date. Check it out!
