Over the Christmas period, approximately 5 million Christmas puddings, 2 million turkeys and 74 million mince pies are thrown away in the UK, The Big Issue reported last year.
These quantities are staggering, especially given the fact that nearly 2 million people in the UK are undernourished and more than half a million rely on food parcels, according to Oxfam.
If you do not finish all the food on your Christmas table, then it is important to think twice before chucking it in the bin, as both an environmental and a social issue.
