The Co-operative Magazine has revealed the result of its
latest web-based poll, which asked readers ‘how much of your weekly
shop goes in the bin?’
Of those magazine readers who took part in the survey, 61 per cent stated that less
than 10 per cent of products from their weekly food shop go in the bin. This is
contrary to the national findings, which suggest that the majority of households in
the UK waste around a quarter (25 per cent) of their food each week.
“These results suggest that our readers are shrewder and less wasteful than the
national average,” said Jeanette Franks, editor of the magazine.
“With tips on how to cut your weekly shopping bill and features on how to make delicious meals
using leftovers, our readers have the information they need to ensure that they only
buy what they need and they therefore end up using the majority of it each week. We
encourage people to shop more frequently and only buy the items they need, rather
than doing a big weekly shop which inevitably leads to wasted food and money,”
Other related articles and features in The Co-operative Magazine include: A Quick
Guide to Recycling in the Home, and Waste Not Want Not, both in the ethical living section, as well as low-fat meal ideas and tips for how to keep the kids health and happy.
The online magazine aims to be interesting and informative, as well as to bring
daily news on a wide variety of subjects, from fairtrade and the recent E-Coli
outbreak, to the state of the housing market and the latest news in travel and
leisure. It also gives readers the chance to browse a huge variety of features and
guides and to leave their own tips and comments for fellow readers to benefit from.
The online magazine is interactive and many people have already made reading it a
part of their daily routine.
