Help Combat Climate Change by Reducing Food Waste

We all know that food waste is not good for the planet. Now a report by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reveals that food waste is in fact responsible for 10% of global emissions. This statistic is also applied by the UNEP Food Waste Index Report 2021. UNEP Food Waste Index Report 2021 They estimate that “8-10% of global greenhouse emissions are associated with food that is not consumed.” Food is usually wasted either because it has gone past its use-by date or because too much was cooked. By changing our cooking and eating habits, we can all do our bit to reduce waste.

One of the simplest ways is to use ZWILLING’S Fresh & Save vacuum food storage. Thanks to these vacuum sealed boxes and bags, food can be kept fresh for up to five times longer in the cupboard, fridge or freezer. This method of preserving and storing food locks in vitamins and minerals without losing freshness and flavour. Use for fresh ingredients, packed lunches, leftovers, batch cooked soups, sauces, stews, chills and casseroles or to portion out meat, fish, vegetables and fruit

According to research by CNN Business, about 2.5 billion metric tons of food is wasted around the world every year. This is having a huge impact on climate change. What’s more, figures indicate that 40% of all food produced goes uneaten. To help cut back on food waste at home, ZWILLING’s Fresh & Save vacuum storage boxes and bags can be used for everything from leftovers to seasonal produce, packed lunches and batch cooking.

The process works by using the vacuum pump with the glass or plastic boxes and bags. Simply pop ingredients, food or leftovers into a Fresh & Save container then suck the air out using the wireless smart pump and store in the fridge, freezer or cupboard for another day. Vacuum sealing not only keeps food fresh for up to five times longer but it also helps preserve flavour, vitamins and nutrients for fresh, tasty dishes any day of the week.

Pre-prepared dishes can be re-heated and placed straight into the oven up to 180°C {with lid removed} if using one of the glass boxes. As well as plastic and glass boxes, there is also a compartmentalised lunch box, a gratin dish and BPA-free vacuum bags ideal for portioned fruit, vegetables, meat or fish.

What’s more, every Fresh & Save product features a QR code that can be scanned with the app, which is downloadable from the App Store as well as Google Play. Simply key in a few details and it will remind you when food’s extended shelf life is approaching. In a few easy and simple steps, we can all cut back on food waste, save time, save money and change culinary habits for the better, helping to protect our planet for now and future generations.
