Rubies in the Rubble
Over a third of all produce never reaches our plates. Much discarded food is perfectly edible, but thrown away due to aesthetic imperfections, over-forecasted demand or inefficiency in storing and distributing. Rubies in the Rubble are on a mission to encourage people to waste less, treasure their resources and live more sustainably. They rescue fruit and veg from markets across London and turn it into delicious relishes, preserving the planet as they preserve the produce. In a typical month they save 500 cucumbers, 3900 tomatoes and 1300 onions which is a CO2 saving of 2530kg.
