Most of us are unaware that every one in five shopping bags of food bought in Australia is wasted. That’s a staggering fact amounting to about four million tonnes of food going to waste each year. In our Nana’s day this would have been unthinkable.
1 Million Women’s My Nana Says campaign was recently launched in response to this alarming trend with the aim of encouraging young women to reduce how much food they waste by sharing tips that were handed down by their groovy grannies or the wise woman in their life.
By reducing our food waste we could save an estimated 100Kg of CO2 per household, per year! Something clearly needs to change and when you also consider that wasting less food would save you money, why wouldn’t you want to join forces with 1 Million Women and share your Nana’s thrifty thoughts?
It’s easy! Simply send 1 Million Women a tip and/or a pic of you and your Nana (or special wise lady).
Entries open April 11 and close May 9.
5 winning pictures or tips will be selected. The winners will have a special day of pampering and a photo shoot with their Nana.
Share your Nana’s thrifty wisdom and help make 2014 the year of Zero Waste
