The Uneaten Matters Pledge

As a university student life revolves around many things, one of those important things is food.

Whether it be the instant noodles that you eat during your midnight exam study sesh or the carbs you overload on to cure Friday night’s hangover.

But, its not very often that we ever consider the impacts of the food we ignore/forget about and end up throwing in the bin.

Many people believe that food wastage is only a problem for massive corporations. But the truth is households play a major role in the food wastage problem.

Australians throw out $8 billion dollars worth of food every year – that’s enough food to solve world hunger and about 1/4 of the food we buy! (If you haven’t done so already, check out our infographic so we can give you the hook up)

So in saying all of this, can you save the world by using uneaten food?

At UNEATEN MATTERS we believe the things you do in the kitchen can end up having a massive effect on the environment.

If you feel as strongly about food wastage as we do we’d love for you to give us the ultimate fist bump and say WTF (what the fork) to food wastage!

  1. I just took your pledge! What a great idea to inspire young people to stop wasting food and show them how they can start making small changes in their consumption habits. I will definitely be keeping an eye on how I use food and will definitely start taking food home when I eat out 😛
