Love Food Hate Waste Release Free App
A new app for iPhone and android aimed at allowing consumers to keep track of food planning, shopping, cooking and making the most of leftovers has been developed by Love Food Hate Waste. Available for free download from their website http://bit.ly/12f0suQ , the app provides an update to the previous programme released in 2010.
The cost of the 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink thrown away in the UK is in the region of £12 billion per year. It’s hoped the app will provide a simple source of information to allow the public to start to reduce those figures whilst saving themselves money. Love Food Hate Waste’s Emma Marsh said “ This all-new app, which is free to download and use, builds on the knowledge and expertise LFHW has gained over the years.” Economics is not the only consideration as she explained, the environmental consequences are also an important issue. “ Wasting less food is not only good for our pockets, but it’s also good for the environment, helping to save energy and water, and reducing our carbon footprint. By making all this information available via the new free app, we want to make it even easier for people to get the most from the food they buy.” The previous app released in February 2010 has been downloaded over 100,000 times.
