Waste Unit 2 - Going Nude! (SEED Resource)

Author: NevRwaste

Description: This unit is about encouraging students to examine the amount of waste in what they consume at school. It introduces the concept of ‘nude food’ (food that comes to school without disposable packaging – extra plastic bags, paper bags, wrappings, plastic water bottles or cling wraps) and the choices that are available to them to reduce waste. As Australia is the second highest producer of waste per person in the western world and school lunches add enormously to this, (around 30kg per child per year of litter) this unit looks at alternatives and encourages positive plans of action.
