An estimated 1/3 of the world’s food is wasted along the supply and consumption chain from farm to kitchen. What can you do to help this Christmas?
This morning you may have discovered your milk was spoiled and tossed it in the garbage before trying to find something else to eat. Maybe you didn’t finish your whole breakfast and that went in the trash, too.
You’re not alone. An estimated 1/3 of the world’s food is wasted along the supply and consumption chain from farm to kitchen. How much does that add up to? A lot!
And with Christmas just around the corner and an estimated £64 million’s worth of food set to be wasted in the UK alone, it’s the perfect time to start reducing some of that waste!
There are a lot of programs helping to combat food waste this Christmas. Some supermarkets have started to offer items past its best before date at a reduced rate and are providing food for those most in need. There are also a number of steps you can take to help in your home as well.

The precise workings of Bitcoin are still a mystery to many but here’s everything you need to know about the rise of the digital currency.
Bitcoin is a digital currency which uses peer-to-peer technology. It doesn’t require a bank for making online transactions worldwide and is also known as the first cryptocurrency that does not use central repositories. As such, it’s classified as a decentralised currency by the U.S. treasury.
The currency was first introduced in 2008 to a cryptographic mailing list. On 9th January 2009, the first version (1.0) of Bitcoin was released and on 12th January, the first transaction took place.
Presently, Bitcoin prices are climbing and there’s a whole host of significant, and widespread, clients. Pennsylvania was the first state in U.S. to accept Bitcoins back in 2013.
UK bank, Barclays, have revealed that they will be the first to facilitate users in making charitable donations using the currency outside their system.
Total Processing has created an infographic to explain The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin since 2008.
