Small Change Big Difference had benefits for employers and employees. It helped companies reduce their overall waste (thereby saving money) and work towards achieving Corporate Social Responsibility goals. Most employees will eat at least one meal at work during their working day. Often, we get into habits that mean we aren’t eating as well as we could and ‘eating on the go’ means we generate more waste, including food.
Wasted food is a major contributor to climate change and can be a huge financial cost – an average family can save as much as £70 each month by reducing their food waste. Throwing away good food is also a huge waste of energy and water that are used in the production, transportation and storage of food.
