Decathlon and Too Good To Go team up to combat food waste in Milton Keynes

    The free 'Too Good To Go' app lets people buy extra and unsold food and drink from restaurants, grocery stores, pubs and producers to stop it from going to waste.

    Decathlon Milton Keynes has partnered with 'Too good to go' to prevent food from unnecessarily going to waste.

    Customers in Milton Keynes can buy local 'Magic Bags' by simply downloading the app and searching unsold produce in nearby businesses via the local map.

    The launch of the partnership comes as the Too Good To Go Games campaign begins.

    The campaign is encouraging customers to save as many 'Magic Bags' as they can between the 23rd July - 6th August.

    Decathlon are supporting the summer campaign with 200 £10 Decathlon gift cards in a prize draw.

    Nicola Barnabo, Decathlon UK Fitness Leader, said: “This partnership is hugely important to our mission to protect our playground. For a long time we have been looking at how we can reduce our waste across all areas of the business, so we’re delighted to be working with Too Good To Go to reduce our food waste.

    “The initial phase of this partnership has shown we can have a huge impact and we can’t wait to build on this going forwards. We’ve already saved thousands of meals and we can’t wait to save thousands more, significantly reducing our impact on the environment.”

    Paschalis Loucaides, UK Managing Director from Too Good To Go, said: “I’m thrilled to be announcing the launch of our partnership with Decathlon here in the UK. The Decathlon Magic Bags are already proving extremely popular and it’s great to be fighting food waste alongside a brand whose ethos aligns so closely with our own.

    "Food waste accounts for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions and this is something we want to change. With partners like Decathlon on board, I know we’ll continue to take a huge bite out of the problem.”
