Don't throw away flesh from Halloween pumpkin; CLIMATE CHANGE.
The Co-operative alone sells around 265,000 pumpkins each Halloween. Growers estimate that around 4m are sold every Halloween in the UK - so shoppers could be discarding 8,000 tonnes of perfectly edible pumpkin flesh. Pumpkin flesh can be used to make a variety of tasty and healthy dishes, and The Co-operative has enlisted the help of community chef, Mark Earndon, to create some inspiring and easy Halloween-themed recipes.
According to the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), UK households throw away a staggering 6.7m tonnes of food every year.
Carve your pumpkin - but use the flesh
