Reducing the waste footprint in your school tuckshop

Are you interested in doing more to manage waste in your school tuckshop?

Did you know that about one-third of all food produced for human consumption around the world goes to waste? The impact of food waste is immense, so it’s vital to focus on managing our food waste using sustainable practices.

As soon as you start throwing away fewer resources, particularly food, you’re making strides to reduce your carbon footprint. Reducing food waste can also save you money and reduce the amount of garbage your tuckshop produces.

Your school community can benefit greatly from sustainable practices you implement, helping build lifelong food waste avoidance and reduction behaviours for students and their families.

There are many ways that tuckshops produce waste, but the good news is that you can do a lot to reduce yours.

Here’s some simple ideas to get you started.
