WRAP, the UK’s leading sustainability body, found that every year more than 500,000 tonnes of food waste is produced by a whole range of business. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the damage that sending food waste to landfill has on our planet. But it’s not just that- business owners will see other benefits just from properly disposing of their food waste. Carry on reading to learn how this simple change could improve your business.
If you’re looking for a way to save money in your business, then properly disposing of food waste can have a positive effect on your finances. Currently, sending waste to landfill you will set you back £91.36 per tonne raising to £94.15 in 2020, but, by using a service that can minimise your waste and correctly dispose of everything that’s left you’ll soon be saving those pennies.
Help the environment
Food waste that goes to landfill produces methane as it breaks down- a gas 20 times more potent than CO2. However, if you choose to hire a professional food waste service the majority will have eco-friendly solutions at the heart of what they do. Many companies offer an excellent service by transporting waste to facilities that specialise in converting old food into renewable energy; both reducing your landfill fees and your carbon footprint.
While you may be on top of your food waste recycling at home, you shouldn’t forget about it in your business and good practice is a great way of attracting new customers. In a time when people are increasingly aware of environmental issues, only using business that actively contribute to helping the planet is a top priority on many people’s agendas. Staff and employees that are committed to finding eco-friendly business solutions is a strong selling point for many- implementing positive changes will allow you to serve a whole new crowd.
