 A new Scottish survey reveals that the nation's misconceptions about tinned food could be driving them to spend money on food that ultimately goes to waste. ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland is now encouraging consumers to reconsider tinned food to tackle the cost of living and climate change. The survey showed that 21% of people view tinned food as "a last resort", while 33% of respondents associate it with elderly people and students. However, tinned food can be "shelf-stable", making it a long-lasting and budget-friendly option for households, while also being infinitely recyclable. All 32 Scottish local authorities collect cans from the kerbside, making them easy to recycle at home. They're also infinitely recyclable, meaning they can be made into other tins again and again.
