The first step in taking part in the WormsWork project is to take a look at what food waste is produced by your household. An awareness of which foods end up as waste makes it easier to reduce the quantity of that food which is either bought or cooked in an amount that cannot be consumed before it goes off.
To reduce this type of waste, we simply have to buy smaller quantities or cook smaller portions. This will reduce the amount of perfectly edible food being turned into waste.
To begin the process of looking at your food waste, print out Waste Monitoring Form 1 and complete the form over the period of one week. You will be asked to fill in a similar form once your worm box has become well established so that you can see how your household has changed it’s habits.
