#TravellersCheck your fridge & save food and holiday money!

Summer holidays are upon us. Your bags are packed, your out of office is ON, but is the fridge still half full?

Cucumbers, cheese, a bag of leaves… don’t leave them home alone.  We’ve teamed up with Hubbub to put together tips to help you get friendly with your freezer – you’ll be surprised at how many different foods will freeze up ice-ly!

You could consider cooking and freezing a homecoming meal. No time to cook? Sharing is caring and helps reduce food waste too, over 80% of us would be happy to take food from a neighbour going on holiday, and the downloadable postcard on the Hubbub website can help you get in the community spirit. There might even be a community fridge nearby, you can find your nearest here.

Research commissioned by environmental charity Hubbub shows that households across the UK throw away £½ billion worth of edible food when heading off on holiday each year, and £12 million worth of food ends up in the bin in the first week of the school holidays.

Hubbub has teamed up with Samsung to offer a fantastic fridge as a prize for the best #TravellersCheck campaign photo. To enter, simply make yourself a homecoming meal for the freezer or gift some surplus food in your community. Take a snap of your #TravellersCheck, follow @HelloHubbub on Instagram and share the picture. If you don’t use Instagram, no problem. Email your picture to campaigns@hubbub.org.uk.

So remember, three simple steps – freeze, cook or gift – are all you need to tackle food waste and save cash this summer.

Passport? Check. Bags packed? Check. Food Waste? #TravellersCheck.
