Ready Steady Skip

Ready Steady Skip is a short film made by a community of friends in response to our continual amazement at the things we find in skips; to share what we experience of the staggering amounts of food waste seen by retailers as nothing more than a factor in the cost of doing business.

Ready Steady Skip is intended to raise awareness and outrage about food waste in an accessible and entertaining way.

The Bigger Picture
17 million tonnes of food goes into British landfill sites every year.
4 million tonnes of this food is perfectly good to eat. If sold in shops, this food would have a value of around £18 billion.
The supermarkets call this a “surplus”, meanwhile 4 million people in the UK can't afford to buy healthy food.
Supermarkets prefer to throw away food that is approaching its sell-by date rather than mark it down in price, as the cost of staff time is greater than the money made on the reduced items.
If people are choosing to act responsibly over their own environmental impact, we also need to bring into question the way we are sold food.

The supermarkets control over growers and producers dictate our buying habits. We‘re no longer aware of what is seasonal or local. We‘ve come to expect to be able to buy anything we like all year around. Fully stocked shelves as policy inevitably leads to large amounts of food reaching its “best before” date on the shelf.

It makes no sense for food to travel so far and consume so many limited resources, only to be fed to a British landfill or incinerator while it is still in good condition.
