Nude Food – What is it? Why do we need it?
On the first day of Term 2 2014, Grade 5 students did a litter audit of the school and surrounding area. 814 pieces of rubbish were found! The common items found were soft plastics (e.g. cling wrap, scrunchable plastic), hard plastic (e.g. drink bottles, yoghurt containers) and a mix of paper, straws and even padlocks and polystyrene.
What is it? Nude Food is food with little or no packaging.What do you need? Snacks and lunch in reusable containers.Drinks in reusable containers.
What to reduce - lunches in plastic bags, cling wrap or foil.- single use drink boxes, bottles, cartons or pouches
Nude Food Tip No. 1Discuss with your child what they like to eat and how much.
Bin audits in schools show large quantities of unopened pre-packaged foods, including single-serve yoghurts, cheese sticks, sandwiches, uneaten apples/fruit and many near full fruit boxes being thrown away. This costs your family money as well as creating waste.
Parents and students - pack a Nude Food lunch box to reduce litter at Albert Park PS and stop litter travelling to the Bay.
