Freshly Baked Oat and Dandelion Honey Loaf | Our Top Hacks To Reduce Your Bread Waste
There are very little pleasures in life greater than a freshly baked loaf of bread. Brendan has been making good use of our dandelion honey in this lovely loaf.
Bread is one the worst offenders when creating food waste in the UK, so much that we waste around 900,000 tonnes of bread every year. When you start looking into the statistics how much we chuck out, it can get pretty scary! Now, instead of going into panic mode, lets start working towards solutions, these are our top tricks in reducing your bread waste…
1. Freeze it… Seems like the most simple and obvious answer, but that’s because it really works! If we buy a loaf, we slice it up and place half of into the freezer until we need it, so there’s no chance of it going mouldy. Easy peasy!
2. Crumb it, crouton it, or find another purpose for it… if your bread is starting to go stale it means it is perfect for bread crumbs, simply crumble or blend it and use as added texture on mac and cheese or a gratin, the options are endless! You can also, slice it up, bake it with a little oil and use as croutons for soup or a lovely salad. And for all you Brits out there, stale bread is even perfect for desserts such as bread and butter pudding!
3. Make your own! And lastly, we know not everyone has time for this, but incase you do… making your own bread adds a level of appreciation that means you’ll cherish bread so much more. It seems like such a disposable food because of how cheap is in the supermarket, but as soon as you start putting in the effort to make your own, you feelings about bread will change, plus it’ll taste way more delicious!

Trends come and go, but good design lasts. Do things once, do them well, and you'll save resources long term. Designing your home so things are exactly as you want them can be the greener choice. I've always hated wastefulness, and one of the things I love about interior design is visiting clients' homes years later and seeing that very little of what we created together has changed. Or, if they've moved house, that they're still living with the same pieces and recombining them - because their home is a reflection of them, and not some short-lived trend. #sustainability#interiordesign#gooddesignisforever@notedesignstudio is spot on, and their new cabinet fronts for Ikea have that #bespokekitchen aesthetic. So smart, you guys!

I spoke earlier in the week on behalf of the Citizens Climate Lobby at the monthly meeting of the City of Pleasnton's committee for Energy and the Environment. I was pleased to see the number of high school students in attendance at the meeting. To those who need the do be reminded, it is the future of the environment they will live in is what we are striving to keep intact.
