Hi there, our web site is
And we measure our environmental impact (weight of food saved, # meals, CO2 emissions) through sampling analysis i.e. we pull off a representative sample of listings from the app and analyse and code them up to get the weight and value of food saved. We then apply standard "meals" and CO2 converters to get to those metrics. Hope that helps!

Great suggestion Brandon! I've read about Copia, and they sound amazing, so will definitely get in touch, thank you :)

Great! OLIO is available for use in Paris, but isn't yet up and running there. How we get going in new cities is via our network of 3.5k (and growing) volunteers who spread the word about OLIO in their local communities. If you know of anyone who would be interested in kick-starting OLIO in their neighbourhood then please just ask them to drop us a line at Thanks!
