Halloween Food Waste Horror!
Join the #PumpkinRescue
– Every year over a quarter of all Halloween pumpkins end up in landfill – that’s 18,000 tonnes of food waste
– Many more pumpkins go straight to the food waste bin or composting without being eaten
– Hubbub and Wasted Kitchen are urging Macknade pumpkin carvers to join the biggest yet #PumpkinRescue
– Every pumpkin eaten is a step towards tackling the 7.1 million tonnes of food and drink that is thrown away from UK homes every year.
Halloween is now Britain’s third biggest commercial holiday, after Christmas and Easter, and the country’s second biggest party night after New Year’s Eve. A spooky side of Halloween is the shocking number of edible pumpkins that go to waste each year.
