New Campaign Turns Food Waste Into Delicious Smoothies

Almost half a million tons of food is wasted in London each year. An organization known as 'Love Food Hate Waste' is campaigning around the U.K. to bring awareness to this costly issue.

'Love Food Hate Waste' uses food waste and over-ripened fruits and vegetables to make smoothies. They offer these free smoothies to highlight eco-friendly alternative ways to store and keep food longer. For example, keeping fruits and vegetables in its original packing and in the refrigerator can help produce last up to two weeks!
