Fighting food waste with every mouthful; Oddbox goes directly to farmers and rescues what they’ve got too much of, what’s in season and what might be too ‘odd’ for supermarkets. With the belief that all food grown should be eaten, their recycled food boxes come filled with rescued fruit and veg and are delivered directly to your door. You can even peek inside the upcoming boxes to see what’s in season; so there might be the odd surprise, but you can still plan ahead. Sustainably built, they are also a fellow B Corp certified business. Finally, even the most sustainable of us still have leftover produce; which is why Oddbox donate theirs to food produce charities at the end of each week.
