fruit by numbers

Taste not waste (our little project to do good with unwanted fruit) is coming to the end of its trial run at East Sheen Primary School, so we thought it was worth a look down memory lane at how it's all gone. In the 10 or so weeks it's been running we've seen:

1 founder on a Blendavenda

Team Photo

1 MP Zac Goldsmith on a Blendavenda

Innocent 16

Quite a lot of cheering (or jeering?)


300 children on the Blendavenda (those that could reach the pedals, and not all at once)


450 happy smoothie-filled kids



1 visit to the Houses of Parliament

111108 Jojo at houses of parliament

And over 1500 portions of fruit saved

Waste-o-meter target reached

To celebrate reaching our target of 1500 portions of fruit and being well on our way to 2000, we've got ten blenders to give away to ten lucky schools. We'd love it if we could kick start a mini waste revolution, so we've put together this handy guide to help others do good with unwanted fruit. To be in with a chance of winning one of our blenders for your school click here, and please get your entries in by Friday 16th December.
