Nottingham Restaurants and Retailers prevent 22,500 kg of CO2 emissions with app Too Good To Go.
Food waste fighting app Too Good To Go has announced that it has saved 1 million meals in the UK since its launch in 2016, 9,006 of which were in Nottingham. By saving 9,006 meals, Too Good To Go Waste Warriors have prevented 22,500 kg of CO2 emissions1, the same as that caused by burning 24,598 pounds of coal.Research from Too Good To Go shows that over two thirds of Brits don’t realise that food waste contributes to climate change2. For Too Good To Go it’s not just about the number of meals saved, the company wants to inspire and empower everyone to think more about the food we waste and the impact this has on our planet.
Hayley Conick, UK MD, Too Good To Go said: “While we are thrilled to have hit this milestone, the 1 million meals saved so far is just the tip of the iceberg. Seven million tonnes of edible food is wasted in the UK every year and we are on a mission to change this”
“When we speak to food brands and outlets it is clear that one of the biggest challenges they face is finding a simple, sustainable and scalable solution for their surplus produce. By connecting them with hungry consumers on our app we are successfully reducing the volume of food that is thrown away. For our Waste Warriors it’s win win win – by doing one small thing they get delicious food at great prices and do their bit to help the planet.”Too Good to Go partners in West Bridgford include: Swirls Desserts on Gordon Road, ØKENDE on Gordon Road, Cheff in Lady Bay, and Forde’s at Tudor Square.
Nottingham partners include: Greene King, The Square Eatery – Nottingham University, Ugly Bread Bakery, Pizzastorm and YO!
