The worldwide issue of food waste is being tackled by an increasingly popular app called Too Good to Go.

Facebook users in Marbella, on the Costa del Sol, have been discussing an app that aims to tackle our growing food wastage. Too Good to Go is the most direct way to help reduce food waste by connecting customers to restaurants and supermarkets that have surplus food that would otherwise be thrown away.

In Marbella alone, there are over 20 establishments that are involved in the initiative including Carrefour and El Campo, where you can purchase a food package worth €9 for just €3.99. This initiative is a great saver for families and households and includes all kinds of food from fruit and veg to pastries and cakes.

The Too Good to Go website says: “In 2020 alone, 45 per cent of all the food that was thrown away in Spanish households was fruit and vegetables, with a total of more than 474 million kilos wasted.”

”The latest study by Too Good To Go, the largest app that fights against food waste, reveals that 70 per cent of Spaniards say they throw fruit and vegetables in the trash frequently,” this is something the app aims to tackle.

All you have to do is download the Too Good to Go app in the Google Play Store, register your details and you can then be involved in saving surplus food from your nearest establishments, saving the planet whilst also saving your money.
