Our kids are setting the example for the future and it is time for adults to start paying attention and following suit. The Eco Team at Blantyre Public School took the remarkable initiative to reduce food waste, something we should all be more conscious about.
Canada wastes on average 873 lbs of food per person every year, this makes Canada one of the biggest wasters on the planet. In an effort to reduce these numbers in their community, the Eco Team collected unused foods throughout the lunchroom that were headed for the trash. With the gathered leftovers, the students made a loaf in which they proceeded to sell to staff throughout the school.
The Eco Team’s awe-inspiring initiative raised $10 which they donated to ‘Feed It Forward’. The children hoped to not only set an example for classmates but for the future.
