🎧 New podcast episode:
“If it were a country, food waste would be the third largest source of greenhouse gas emission after the USA and China, and that’s because a landmass larger than China is used every single year to grow food that is never eaten.”
OLIO connects neighbours with each other and with local businesses so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. This could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from your baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away. For your convenience, OLIO can also be used for non-food household items too.
🍹 What we drank during the episode: mojitos
