Have you heard of Olio?

I was fortunate to receive a yearly subscription to BBC Good Food magazine for Christmas this year.

Whilst having a rare five minutes to myself, I came across an article in the January edition promoting Olio, a new mobile app which helps to eliminate food waste.

You register an account by downloading the app, and can post when you have unwanted food that you would like to share amongst your neighbours or local community.

It could be a tin of soup that you don’t like, a large portion of vegetables that you simply won’t be able to utilise before its best, or maybe your baby has outgrown a certain nappy size and you still have 3 bags left.

You simply post an advert on the site and local people will be notified. You organise collection and your food waste/ household item problem is solved. Less will go into landfill and food is shared to those who will benefit from it more.

Take a look at the Olio website and consider creating an account like 2 million people already have: https://olioex.com/
