How can I get involved?
Thank you for your interest in our campaign. Supporting No Waste Within is as easy as 1-2-3:
Make a commitment that you will try to cut down on the amount of, and ultimately eliminate, the food waste caused by the development, cooking, styling and photographing of recipes, as stated in the campaign pledge:
“I promise that no food waste was created by the development, cooking, styling and photographing of this recipe and that, where it wasn’t possible for me to enjoy it myself, I have redistributed, repurposed, retained or recycled the food.”
It doesn’t have to be overnight and it doesn’t have to be your entire recipe index! Just one small change at a time can really make a difference. Why not focus on just one new recipe?
Place the No Waste Within logo on your website and write a blog post about the campaign, to help educate your followers and other bloggers about our cause. You can feel free to copy and paste material from this site (if you are concerned about explaining it) but we do request that you link back to this site so that others can learn more.
Right click on the colour logo to save to your own device; put the logo anywhere on your website to show your support of the campaign:
Any time you create a recipe that genuinely produces no waste, you can ‘stamp’ it with our No Waste Within logo – a badge of honour to show that that particular recipe complies to our aims.
Right click on the white logo to save to your own device (the background is transparent); stamp the white logo on any recipe images that fulfil the brief.
Stamp your photographs like this to show that your recipe complies with our aims:
Do I have to be a food blogger?
No! The campaign was designed by food bloggers for food bloggers but anyone can join us in supporting our aims. If you are a food stylist, photographer, buyer or anything else in the food industry, we WANT your support and help to spread the word about food waste. If you feel you can’t alter your recipe process much at all then we would still appreciate your support and your help in educating others about food waste.
What’s in it for me?
As food bloggers you can have a really positive impact on influencing people to change their food habits.
No Waste Within is a pledge that you, as a food blogger, can sign up to. It shows that you avoid wasting the food that you make and photograph for your blog and gets your readers thinking about food waste. It could bring some good publicity to your blog, have a good impact on the environment and help people’s finances. You’ll be listed on our Supporters page and you are free to blog about the campaign as much as you like – in fact, we encourage it!
