Running from Monday 3rd to 7th September 2018 Zero Waste week encourages people to be a part of the solution of rubbish landing up in landfill, an incinerator, on the bottom of the ocean, litter or the stomach of an animal. It's a grass roots campaign raising awareness of the environmental impact of waste and empowering participants to reduce waste.
Rejuce are a a perfect example of a company who uses everything.
Thomas Fletcher, a disgruntled chef who hated having to throw away perfectly good food, decided to learn more about the wider problem of food waste. In 2010 he enrolled in a Masters in Environmental Politics and Globalisation at Kings College London where he researched the causes and effects of this surplus on an agricultural and industrial level. After his masters he decided to combine these ideas with his passion for cooking, initially setting up community banquets using surplus food in London.
After much consideration, in 2012 Tom decided juice was the most sustainable option to help solve the problem of food waste. Rejuce was born!
