Many of us worry about food waste, and yet one in three of us admit to binning spotty bananas and one in ten people admit to tossing bananas with any green on the skin. This adds up to an un-peelievable £8m worth of bananas wasted every year. And food waste isn’t just hard on our pockets, it has a huge impact on the environment.That’s quite a #BananaDrama.   

Take a spin 

We’re on the road across Norfolk and Suffolk this summer to share tips on how households can get Food Savvy with bruised bananas and other often binned foods. The #BananaDrama pop up will visit festivals and fairs across East Anglia, where visitors can use their pedal power to whizz up delicious blends on the smoothie bike and pick an a-peeling recipe from our banana tree*.

Get #FoodSavvy

1.4m bananas is a lot of waste but it’s only a fraction of the edible food that Britons bin every day. If you’re worried about waste, our #FoodSavvy campaign is on hand to share all the simple, savvy ways that households can divert perfectly good food from the bin. And if you fancy saving a few quid, the #FoodSavvy Challenge is packed with top tips and recipes to help you save up to £70 a month.

Visit www.foodsavvy.org.uk to find out more, or email us  to find out if the banana tree and bike can visit your community, business or school. And if you visit the #BananaDrama installation or try out one of our recipes, don’t forget to take a snap and share!
