5 KS1 KS2 KS3 KS4 KS5
Create some eye catching posters that you can put up inĀ  the dining hall or cafeteria to remind pupils to waste less food.

You might want to include some eye-watering facts, like:
  • Over 1/3 of all food produced globally goes to waste
  • Between 33-50% of all food produced globally is never eaten, and the value of this wasted food is worth over $1 trillion
  • An area larger than China is used to grow food that is never eaten
  • If food waste were a country it would be the 3rd largest emitter of greenhouse gases (after China & the USA)
  • When food waste goes to landfill, which is where the vast majority of it ends up, it decomposes without access to oxygen and creates methane, which is 23x more deadly than carbon dioxide

Or do some research and find out more food waste facts.

Don't forget to include pictures of your posters when you record this activity.
