The Co-operative Magazine releases results of latest online poll


The Co-operative Magazine has revealed the result of its latest web-based poll, which asked readers ‘how much of your weekly shop goes in the bin?’

Of those magazine readers who took part in the survey, 61 per cent stated that less than 10 per cent of products from their weekly food shop go in the bin. This is contrary to the national findings, which suggest that the majority of households in the UK waste around a quarter (25 per cent) of their food each week.

“These results suggest that our readers are shrewder and less wasteful than the national average,” said Jeanette Franks, editor of the magazine.

“With tips on how to cut your weekly shopping bill and features on how to make delicious meals using leftovers, our readers have the information they need to ensure that they only buy what they need and they therefore end up using the majority of it each week. We encourage people to shop more frequently and only buy the items they need, rather than doing a big weekly shop which inevitably leads to wasted food and money,” Franks added.

Other related articles and features in The Co-operative Magazine include: A Quick Guide to Recycling in the Home, and Waste Not Want Not, both in the ethical living section, as well as low-fat meal ideas and tips for how to keep the kids health and happy.

The online magazine aims to be interesting and informative, as well as to bring daily news on a wide variety of subjects, from fairtrade and the recent E-Coli outbreak, to the state of the housing market and the latest news in travel and leisure. It also gives readers the chance to browse a huge variety of features and guides and to leave their own tips and comments for fellow readers to benefit from. The online magazine is interactive and many people have already made reading it a part of their daily routine.
