Food prices are continuing to rise and therefore it can be difficult for families to prepare healthy meals daily, particularly with families who have both parents working, as coming home at the end of a long day and attempting to motivate yourself to start cooking from scratch can be hard.

Living in London doesn’t help, the hustle and bustle and fast paced environment can increase stress levels and with many people no longer feeling secure in their jobs, preparing a hot freshly cooked meal really doesn’t seem like a priority at the time.

The truth of the matter is that eating well can help you remain healthier, better able to concentrate and more importantly helps educate your children and reduce the likelihood of them becoming obese. So how do you do it?

  • cook in batches
  • use leftovers
  • if you use home shopping then why not try something like the Tesco delivery saver and have your shopping delivered twice weekly, this way you will get less waste
  • shop more often, there are an abundance of fabulous small retailers in London selling fresh produce
  • plan your meals in advance
  • write a shopping list
  • make twice as much as you need for a meal and then freeze half for another day

How Recycling Can Save Your Business Money

How To Save Money Recycling

Paper
In most offices, paper can make up a big proportion of the waste that is disposed or recycled every day. You can create a campaign that suggest that you ‘think before you print’, this can include setting up printers and photocopies to print double sided to encourage everyone to use old scraps of paper instead of buying sticky note pads.

Furniture and electrical equipment

Electrical equipment is one of the fastest growing sources of waste from businesses in London. Electrical waste can sometimes also create harmful waste due to heavy metals, non-biodegradable plastics, battery acids and other hazardous elements. It can also pose a security risk if any sensitive information is left on unprotected hard disks or other storage media.

The best option for businesses if it is necessary to throw something away is to donate the product to a local re-use organisation so it can be used again.  Re-used goods offer excellent value if you are a new business starting up, moving offices, or expanding your workforce. The furniture that is available has typically only been used for a fraction of its intended life span.

Top Tips To Reduce Household Waste

Household Food Waste

Research has found that in the UK throwing away £13 billion of household food waste in a year (about 7.3 million tonnes). Some waste is inevitable (egg shells, tea bags, etc) but a large proportion of this waste can be avoided. Get into te habit of using up what you’ve already bought before you buy more groceries. This is especially important with fresh produce such as fruit or vegetables, bread, etc. Checking what you have in the fridge and cupboard before making a shopping list, as many buy in  bulk to ‘save money’ yet end up wasting the food.

Technology and Gadgets

Technology seems to date so quickly and there’s always a new gadget people purchase. Sometimes we really do just need to think seriously about whether we do actually need that shiny new toy or whether we are just buying it for the sake of it. Other times though you may  need to upgrade or buy a new piece of technology and in these cases you can do it  knowing it won’t go to waste. Gumtree, Facebook or Freecycle are all good places to sell or donate your old technology to someone who will get good use out of it.

Clothing

Fashion too has become very disposable, as it is often cheaper to buy a new item of clothing than it is to repair the old. Buying cheap isn’t always the most cost effective in the long run though, and spending a bit more to buy quality will usually mean it lasts longer and works out less expensive on a ‘cost per wear’ basis. However there are situations where it may be difficult to avoid purchasing clothes that will only be worn a few times. Clothing is at least one of the types of potential waste that can most easily be reused or recycled.  You can sell at car boot sales or on Facebook, or donate to a local charity.
