Nude Food Day this Tuesday August 28

August 21, 2018

Every piece of packaging or excess food that we can save from landfill makes a difference. As part of the Wipe Out Waste schools Less to Landfill Challenge, St. Patrick’s College is holding a Nude food day (or waste less food day) on Tuesday August 28 to focus on reducing the amount of material that we send to landfill.

The College spends thousands of dollars each year moving rubbish to landfill and on a national scale our society loses more than just money by the amount of rubbish we create.

When planning lunches for this day, and throughout the year, please help us minimise food and packaging waste by packing a waste-less lunch!

Try to pack … – – – A Waste-Less Lunchbox

  • Snacks in reusable containers
  • Drinks in a reusable container
  • Reusable utensils when needed
  • A reusable lunchbox or backpack
  • Small pieces of fruit, yoghurt or snack items in a reusable container

Avoid … – A Disposable Lunchbox

  • Lunches packed in plastic bags or wrap, foil, wax paper
  • Disposable drink boxes, pouches, cans, cartons, and bottles
  • Disposable forks and spoons
  • Pre-packaged single-serve snack items
