Sky: "Food Waste: Six Meals A Week Thrown Away"
"The average UK household throws away the equivalent of six meals every week, costing almost £60 a month, a study has found.
"The waste costs £12.5bn a year despite a significant drive to reduce the problem, a report by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (Wrap) said.
"The equivalent of 24 million slices of bread, 5.8 million potatoes and 5.9 million glasses of milk are thrown away every day, while 86 million whole chickens are discarded every year."
