Bother could reduce the carbon footprint of the average UK household by 2.5%
90% of carbon emissions attributed to the grocery shop are contained within distribution and consumer usage.
These are known as Scope 3 emissions.
Let's look at distribution a little closer...
Weekly drives to do the "big shop".
Multi order deliveries that you don't even realise you're making.
Toilet roll delivered in refrigerated vans.
And this all happens in peak traffic
Because fresh and perishable goods need delivery slots.
Shop fresh locally... for everything else, Bother
What's more, by shopping local, wave goodbye to mountains of unrecyclable plastic waste
Because yep, a whopping 50% of unrecyclable plastic waste comes from food wrapping in supermarkets
Because just by separating out fresh and non-fresh shopping, the reduction in environmental inefficiencies can be MASSIVE.
