Lunchtime Waste – Week 4

It didn’t take long to sort our waste this week.

There was an uneaten LCM and fruit roll up, but they were taken home to eat later.  I think we should try for a plastic free Friday next.

  1. As we are doing something similar at this end we are watching the results of your survey with interest and anticipation!

  2. How were you able to reduce the packaging so much? Educating the children, and it filtered to the parents? Direct contact with parents? Also does the lack of wrappers mean the children are bringing different foods to school?
    At Te Papa in Wellington they have an interactive PC game in one of their science discovery rooms. It gets the child to click and drag what to put in their lunchbox and then rates them at the end at how well they did with their waste. EG if they chose a yoghurt pottle they got less points, than a container of yoghurt that they can take home and wash. Because of that game, I decided to use zip lock bags rather than glad wrap, and then wash and reuse the the bags.
