Food waste and recycling the advantages.
Food waste, why is there so much food wasted? Is it because there is no way to lessen the waste? Is it down to businesses to make changes? Is it because we as individuals are often lazy?
All of the above can be the answer. It is a worldwide epidemic, it’s not just the UK that has discarded in the past wonky vegetables, and things that just don’t look right.
What do we do?
Coral Products (Mouldings) Ltd create plastic injection moulded and blow moulded products. Some of which support the disposal of food waste for composting. Not only do our products make a difference by aiding in the fight against food waste, but many of our products contain recycled materials utilising waste plastic.
More than one third of food produced globally is wasted or spoiled.
What can be done?
- Shop smart and realistically.
It sounds simple, but this is one of the most important things you can do. When you go food shopping, make sure you don’t buy too much food. Meal plan use a list and also try and shop locally supporting your local economy is a great way to encourage and support one another.
- Don’t over-serve food.
Think about the portion you will eat, and then add items that you know will be consumed the next day if there are any left overs this will reduce food waste, trimmings can be composted in our injection moulded plastic kitchen caddies.
- Save and eat leftovers.
Make sure you save uneaten food. Label your leftovers so you can keep track of how long they’ve been in your fridge or freezer and incorporate them into your daily or weekly routine. One of Coral Products PLC’s subsidiaries Interpack LTD create and sell plastic containers suitable for food storage and these are perfect for storing left overs. Secondary use plastic at ts best!
Our food caddies are perfect for preparing your food waste for composting, the design locks in smells and also the larger 23 litre caddy has a spout designed to pour residual liquids from, once drained you can then push down the remainder or the food waste which enables you to fit more food waste into the caddy. Don’t throw the liquid away. The liquid is brilliant for plants, just add it to your watering can and it will help seedlings or established plants grow.
