Zero Waste Week in Food Waste Photos - Day 5...

Breakfast - coco pops and mug of water.  Food waste - none!

Lunch - Sweet corn fritters (made from left over sweetcorn we froze), broccoli, pistachio nuts, windfall apple (saved from the floor from yesterdays garden volunteering stint).  Food waste - broccoli stalks, nut shells, apple core - composted.

Tea - chips from the chippy :) Food waste - ketchup - washed away by dishwasher.


  1. Yay! Another brilliant day for you - I hope you've enjoyed your week Sooz; I've certainly enjoyed seeing what you have been up to - I've almost been holding my breath when I arrive here to see if you managed it!

  2. Fantastic, and thanks for sharing.

    I have to put my hand on my heart and honestly say that our plates are pretty clean when we finished eating, as I serve what we are guaranteed to eat and what remains is either composted or washed away ie sauce.

  3. I had to struggle to eat the last few chips from my tea, Mrs Green, but I was determined to have a clean plate! It's a hard life being zero waste! Thanks for visiting - I have enjoyed my week, thanks for organising it!

    My plates are generally clean too Mangocheeks, I haven't really made any changes this week, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't throwing food away without remembering, so thought I'd get some photographic evidence, but turns out I'm doing ok, there are a few things I want to improve on though, which I'll write about at the end of the week.


Thanks for visiting!
