Feed farm animals, not incinerators
From plough to plate Britain wastes an estimated 16 million tonnes of food every year.
That's enough to fill Wembley stadium 16 times over.
Instead of ending up in landfill or being burnt, much of this food could be eaten by humans.
Much of what people can't eat could feed farm animals. And the rest could be used for composting and anaerobic digestion (treating food scraps to produce heat and gas).
And it gets worse.
By importing animal feeds like soy - rather than feeding animals our leftovers - the UK is driving deforestation abroad.
Please tell the Government this isn't good enough
Ask Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson, to promote food waste as an alternative to imported animal feeds.
