Be a Food Waste Hero!

9th Feb 2018

We are taking part in an exciting Food Waste Challenge being run by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, Eco-Schools NI with support from the Department of Agriculture, Environmental and Rural Affairs, (DAERA).

 

Children have been asked to become 'Food Waste Heroes' at home in a bid to reduce the amount of food waste being sent to landfill in our black bins. Each family (P4 to P7) has been given a bin sticker and a family pledge fridge magnet to display at home. Children have been asked to have fun with food recycling, over mid-term break, e.g. by dressing up as super heroes to throw Food Waste in the caddy or brown bin, making posters to put up in the kitchen or make up a rap etc. 

There is a council run competition for families to submit a photo of them being Food Waste heroes at home. One winning photo will be chosen from each council area and the school will receive a prize. (See details below). 

Your local council will also have resources and information on food waste and recycling facilities in your area. 

 

Have fun!
