Nude Food Day -“ written by Jude Jeandet, Year 12 Student

We have only been given one Earth to live on and care for. If we fail to protect this precious gift, then future generations will not be so lucky. Our society’s unnecessarily high levels of waste are having major adverse effects on our planet. Take for example the fact that 9 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean each year -“ one garbage truck load being dumped every minute! And that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean!

To do our part, the second annual -‘Nude Food’ or Waste Free Day is running on Tuesday the 28th of August, providing our school community with an opportunity to reduce our environmental impact for a day. Hopefully we will see a notable decrease in the number of wrappers, plastics and disposable items that are brought to school for the day. Additionally, we hope that the day will show to the boys how easy it can be to help the environment.

Boys are encouraged to bring fruit and veggies left in their natural packaging, or anything such as sandwiches or leftovers brought to school in a reusable container. The canteen will be shut for the day to support this event. To subsidise, students will be running a low waste subway-style lunch option for the boys: rolls will be on offer with a selection of sliced meats and salads, priced at $3 for one or $5 for two.
