In the first episode, the program looked at the staggering amount of food waste that ends up in landfill each year and the effect this has on the environment.

Reducing waste is an issue we are passionate about, and it’s why we are so proud to be Australia’s leaders in zero waste shopping. Our stores always have been, and always will be, plastic bag free. We encourage our customers to bring their own containers, bags and bottles to refill and we offer waste-free living solutions that eliminate the need for plastic, such as stainless steel water bottles, stainless steel lunchboxes and reusable cotton produce bags.
