14,000 tonnes of food is wasted every year in Richmond upon Thames. The impact on climate change is huge. If food waste were a nation, it would have the world’s third-largest annual carbon footprint, behind the US and China. We all waste food – yet, reducing our food waste and recycling our food is one of the easiest ways we can play our part to help tackle climate change. To explore this further, Emma Beal and Katie Allen join this week’s episode of Talk Richmond. Emma is the Managing Director of West London Waste Authority and Katie is the Founder of Food for Thought, Heathfield. Together they explain how to waste less food, the impact of food waste on the climate and how the food recycling service works.
