Earth and Wheat take bread waste and deliver it to your door the following day. The bread is often fresher than what you would buy in shops. Much like wonky fruit and vegetables, someone somewhere has decided what was manufactured wasn’t good enough to be sold. I like imperfect crumpets, and feel they have a better home in my tum than going to waste.
Which, when you think about it, is ridiculous really. I love a crumpet, oh I do. So having a slightly imperfect crumpet, actually a huge great whopping bag of the things doesn’t matter. Do I really need the perfect crumpet for breakfast? Or can I make do with a simple, plain old crumpet which will do me fine? The latter applies, obviously.
For £6.99 a time I get a box full of wonky bread products. Up to now, this has been crumpets, naan breads, wraps, pancakes, pitta bread and more that I can’t remember. Crucially – these are things I would buy anyway. I’m saving a bit of money by buying slightly less than perfect and I’m also helping with food waste.
Oh, and I should also mention, quote taken direct from the Earth and Wheat FAQ‘s “To help do our part for social sustainability, we are proud to be donating at least one meal’s worth of bread, for every box you order, to UK food charities / food banks to combat food poverty in the UK.To help do our part for social sustainability, we are proud to be donating at least one meal’s worth of bread, for every box you order, to UK food charities / food banks to combat food poverty in the UK.”
I have an Earth and Wheat box delivered every two weeks; this works out about right for the three of us, especially with two of us having lunches at home at the moment.
Here we are, over a year into the pandemic. I’ve worked from home since March 2020, and not being in the office feels normal for me. I’ve grown to enjoy the quiet and my own space. Of course, things are changing, potentially winding down. As that changes, so does life being at home all the time. I still have regular deliveries from Smol, Splosh, Who Gives a Crap and now Earth and Wheat.

I bought the Earth and Wheat box without anyone telling me about them. I decided I ought to start trying to blog again and tell you all about them, because that’s what I’m okay at. So here we are.
