Emily Tunney has done all this ...
Plan a weekly food menu and take a shopping listHelpDid you know: Planning your weekly menu ahead of time and taking a shopping list with you means you can better estimate how much food you need and ensure you don't waste anything by impulse buying. An all round win as you'll save money, waste less food and not forget those all-important ingredients. Planning ahead also means you'll avoid unnecessary extra trips to the supermarket and therefore cut down on your travel emissions.
Waste less foodHelpDid you know: Over half the food thrown straight into our rubbish bins is edible

Emily Tunney has pledged to ...
Buy more seasonal foodHelpDid you know: Although we could meet over 70% of our eating needs from food grown in the UK, we import more than half of the food we consume. Buying locally-grown, seasonal food would mean we could reduce our food miles, use less packaging to preserve fresh produce, and not least help us reconnect with the annual patterns of seasonal produce.
After all this, Emily Tunney will have a footprint of 2.15 planets, and a carbon footprint of 8.15 tonnes per annum
