Decathlon Oxford announced its partnership with an anti-food waste app ‘Too Good To Go’ today.

The app aims to offer customers in Oxford a chance to purchase ‘Magic Bags’ containing food that would have gone to waste, at a fraction of the original price.

Consumers need to download the free Too Good To Go app, search for their nearby Decathlon with unsold food, and purchase a Magic Bag to take advantage of this partnership.

Since teaming up with Too Good To Go last year, Decathlon has already saved over 7 tonnes of CO2e and 2,930 Magic Bags from going to waste.

Paschalis Loucaides, UK Managing Director from Too Good To Go, said: “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.” 

Nicola Barnabo, Decathlon UK Fitness Leader, said that the initial phase of this partnership showed the 'huge impact' they made and building on this going forward is a priority.

He added: “We’ve already saved thousands of meals and we can’t wait to save thousands more, significantly reducing our impact on the environment.”
