The Essex Food Waste Pledge

Closed 31 Dec 2023

Opened 1 Feb 2023


Listen up, Essex food warriors!

The average household in Essex wastes £720 each year by throwing away food that could have been eaten. Not only is food waste costing us all money, it harms the environment and feeds climate change.

Join us in the fight against food waste by taking the Essex Food Waste Pledge. If you make the commitment to watch your waste in 2023, you'll be eligible to be entered into our monthly competitions to win £60 worth of supermarket vouchers.

To stay up to date with campaign news, challenges and competitions, sign up to the Love Essex newsletter. It's easy - tick the box at the end of this survey and you're subscribed!
