Primary schools cleaning up their lunch boxes for Nude Food Day 2013

Oct 13 – 800 separate pieces of single use-packaging are generated by the average school lunchbox every year, according to the data that is being collected as part of Logan City Council’s Nude Food Day Schools’ Competition.

Last month 2,600 students participated in a surprise lunchbox inspection where a staggering 10,272 disposable wrappers and packets were counted in one day! It is therefore hardly surprising that food wrappers and other lunchtime packaging contribute to a significant proportion of the waste generated by schools and destined for landfill.

With the help of lesson plans, classroom activities, educational resources and in-class presentations, developed and delivered by EnviroCom on behalf of Logan City Council, 110 Logan primary school classes will work towards achieving zero-waste in their lunchboxes and reducing their environmental footprint by Nude Food Day 2013.

Nude Food Day (16th October 2013) is a national event created by Nude Food Movers to encourage individuals to make their lunch a healthy, nutritious and environmentally friendly meal by filling it with fresh food and eliminating all unnecessary wrapping and packets.
