Buy 3, Throw 1 Away

There is a world food crisis. This is happening for many different reasons, some of which we have discussed before and I'm not going to go on about it again, but a survey out today added a new shiny reason for this problem. In Britain we throw away £10 billion worth of food every year. For every 3 bags of food that are purchased, 1 whole bag is thrown away. This adds £610 to the average family food bill for the year. The most thrown items are salad, fruit and bread. This weighs an astonishing 3.6 million tonnes. I'm sorry this just a list of numbers but I think they are so astonishing that they speak for themselves.

I have bought 3 albums this week, Eels live at the town hall is fantastic, I have got round to listening to the new Killola album, sorry about that Lisa, but the best thing of the week is the new, long awaited album by Portishead. We have waited a very, very long time for this album but it was worth the time they have taken. It is fantastic. Go and buy it now.
