The real weight of food waste with Brooke Jowett

Our partnership with OzHarvest


Every year, Australian households are responsible for 2.5 million tonnes of good food going to waste. To help Aussies understand the real weight of their food waste, we partnered with OzHarvest to design a vest that weighs 20kg – a physical reminder of how much food the average Aussie household wastes every month. We then put the vest to the test, challenging Brooke Jowett, trainer and sustainability advocate, to wear it for a day to feel the true weight of food waste.

How to reduce your food waste

Top Tips with Brooke Jowett

Mindful meal planning

It’s important to be mindful of what you’re putting in your body, and your fridge! By planning your meals in advance, you can make sure that nothing goes to waste.

Portion with a purpose

Planning your cooking and shopping around how many portions you’re making can reduce your food waste by ensuring no leftovers get lost in the back of the fridge. HelloFresh makes this easy with pre-portioned ingredients and recipes.

Sustainable storage

Proper storage can add days, weeks or months to the life of your ingredients. Keep healthy snacks and food with short-shelf lives at the front of the fridge to make sure you reach for them first.
