  • National Leftovers Day

    Boxing Day is National Leftovers Day. It's the day of the year when Australia's fridges are bursting with leftovers.
    DoSomething's National Leftovers Day is about saving money and helping the environment by using our leftovers and reducing the amount of food going into landfill.
    Each year, Australians throw out $8 billion of edible food. National Leftovers Day aims to change this for the better.
    Leftovers account for 27% of all the food that's wasted in Australian households. National Leftovers Day gives people practical tips that will help to reduce this figure.
