In this section you find some tips that help you saving money and, at the same time, eating responsibly by protecting the environment.
Food shopping has become today a routine activity, above all in large cities. Some of us buy food very quickly and under time pressure, without a clear plan or inventory of what is really needed. Also, we have less and less time to check where the food is coming from. This can make some purchase decisions unhealthy or useless. Unplanned, or purely ads driven food shopping generates a considerable amount of food waste in Western Europe. In addition to that, money wasted on items never consumed is also rising in some EU countries.
We are improving these trends by talking to consumers and sharing tips like the ones listed in this page.

EatResponsible estimates that between 1 and 4 millions tons of food are likely to be wasted in the EU, only because of lack of food shopping planning (from EU data ).

Is “Organic” good? What does organic really mean? Which labels can I trust?
These are some of the questions for which responsible consumers miss a definite answer.
Supermarkets are full of products and labels. Too many choices and lack of information. We are confused and most of the time we don’t make the right choice. But which is the right choice? Difficult to answer if we have not enough information. For example, organic food is booming now. People wants to eat well but it is hard to understand which label is more trustworthy than others. The reasons are that labels don’t give us details on the meaning and positive impacts of their work.
However there is support on this… EatResponisible is here to help you to better understand what is behind the labels. Every week we are going to speak about one of the ethical labels on the global market.
