Fight food waste with the ‘Too Good To Go’ app.

by Cat Woods

Too Good To Go is the free app which allows you to purchase unsold food from top eateries at the end of service, to prevent it from being thrown away. What’s not to love?!

Every day, delicious, fresh food goes to waste at cafes, restaurants, hotels, shops and supermarkets – just because it hasn’t sold in time. Too Good To Go lets you rescue a Magic Bag of this food so it gets eaten instead of wasted. You won’t know exactly what’s in your order until you pick it up – it’s all part of the surprise. It’s Great food at great prices, served with a side of environmental kudos.

The first magic bag that I collected using the app was from Costa, which consisted of six delicious muffins for just £3, worth £11. It was a really nice treat for my family for a fraction of the cost with the feel good factor thrown in, knowing you’d made a bit of a difference.

I’ve got something cool to tell you. 

By rescuing 1 Magic Bag I’ve saved the CO2e equivalent of charging 319 smartphones!

Who knew making an environmental impact could be so simple? 

And the best bit: the more delicious food you continue to eat, the bigger the impact you’ll make.

  • By the time you’ve saved 5 Magic Bags you’ll have saved the equivalent CO2e produced by driving 31 miles
  • By the time you’ve saved 10 Magic Bags, your CO2e equivalent saved will equal the carbon dioxide absorbed over an entire year by an area of forest the size of nine car parking spaces.

and it’s all by eating really delicious food.
