Too Good To Go Celebrates Earth Day By Fighting Food Waste

Too Good To Go – the largest global food surplus app – is urging people to download the app and fight food waste this Earth Day, on 22 April.

Food waste is responsible for approximately 10% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, so its reduction is vital for climate change.

The call comes just weeks after a UN report found that more than one billion tonnes of food went to wate in 2022.

Calling the findings a ‘global tragedy’, the Food Waste Index Report found that the waste was not only a moral but an ‘environmental failure.’

Preventing Food Waste

The Too Good To Go app enables users to save food from local eateries, shops and cafés that would otherwise be discarded for discounted prices.


Launched in Ireland in 2022, Too Good To Go has grown a dedicated user base of 530,491.

The app saved 511,817 bags of surplus food from going to waste in 2023. This is equivalent to avoiding 1,381,905 kilograms of CO2 emissions – 9691 flights from London to Dublin.

It is also comparable to 1,433,087 square metres of land use per year, or saving 414,571,770 litres of water annually.

This yea, the app welcomed 953 new partners including Aldi and SuperValu, bringing the number of participating businesses to 1,800.

Most active engagement with the app comes from Dublin and Galway, built up areas committed to reducing food waste.


‘Growing Commitment In Ireland’

Commenting on Earth Day, managing director of Too Good To Go Sophie Trueman said, “This World Earth Day why not do something that can make a real difference and save food going to waste in your local area?

“We are excited to see the growing commitment in Ireland to sustainability, and we are proud to facilitate a movement that supports both the environment and our local businesses.”
