Knowing more about the food that we eat and how it gets to our plates.
Explaining the environmental impact of food production. The first step is educating ourselves on what we all can do to reduce this damage and how we can eat more consciously.

"OLIO connects neighbours with each other and with local businesses so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. This could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from your baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away.
OLIO believes that small actions can lead to big change. Collectively – one rescued cupcake, carrot or bottle of lotion at a time – we can build a more sustainable future where our most precious resources are shared, not thrown away"
