Many of us worry about food waste, and yet one in three of us admit to binning spotty bananas and one in ten people admit to tossing bananas with any green on the skin. This adds up to an un-peelievable  £8 million worth of bananas wasted every year. And food waste isn’t just hard on our pockets, it has a huge impact on the environment. That’s quite a #BananaDrama. 



Take a Spin 

We’re on the road across Norfolk and Suffolk this summer to share tips on how households can get #FoodSavvy with bruised bananas and other often binned foods. A #BananaDrama installation will visit festivals and fairs across East Anglia, where visitors can use their pedal power to whizz up delicious blends on the smoothie bike and pick an a-peeling recipe from our banana tree.

Get #FoodSavvy

1.4m bananas is a lot of waste but it’s only a fraction of the edible food that Britons bin every day. If you’re worried about waste, our #FoodSavvy campaign is on hand to share all the simple, savvy ways that households can divert perfectly good food from the bin. And if you fancy saving a few quid, the #FoodSavvy Challenge is packed with top tips and recipes to help you save up to £70 a month.
