War on food waste

If we look closely at the numbers, it’s very scary! We all love our beautiful country; however, we need to spread awareness of this or no change will happen quickly. Australia is one of the most wasteful countries in the developed world.

5 Startling Waste & Landfill Statistics in Australia:
πŸ‘‰πŸ» Every year, the waste we generate is growing at twice the rate of our population
πŸ‘‰πŸ» 3.3 million tonnes of food waste are produced every year
πŸ‘‰πŸ» 2.6 million of that is from households
πŸ‘‰πŸ» that’s over 78% of food waste coming from homes in Australia
πŸ‘‰πŸ» On average, 1/3 of household rubbish is food waste.

Being the earth-loving legend you are, rest easy knowing the crew at My Foodie Box has the environment and sustainability at the forefront of their ethos.

With My Foodie Box, food waste is not an option. We source exactly how much is needed, prepare your fresh produce, and deliver it to you pre-packed in perfect portions. This means that you no longer end up with half a bag of wobbly carrots, chewy broccoli stalks or sprouting potatoes you forgot you bought. Instead, you get exactly what you need, always know how to use it, and no food ends up in the bin.

In addition, your meal Box is packed with fresh, local and seasonal WA ingredients.

The Foodie loop system

The food industry is one of the biggest waste generators. Whether the food is wasted and thrown away or plastic packaging is used in masses.

We are all moving towards less plastic; we want a better world for our children by using as much eco-friendly and recyclable or compostable packaging as possible. At My Foodie Box, we choose to reuse our boxes by re-injecting them into our production and delivery cycle as much as possible before sending them for recycling.

Also, all of our containers are eco-friendly and compostable. Many of us use them to store spices and condiments in our pantry! Who doesn’t have hundreds of them on their shelves?

By doing this, we educate our children to waste less and teach them the value and the beauty of planet Earth.

At My foodie box, we re-use over recycle every time if possible.
