Share your Nana’s top tips to win

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?

The Competition

It’s easy! Simply send 1 Million Women a tip and/or a pic of you and your Nana (or special wise lady).

SMS your name, email address and pic and/or tip to 0419 815 102, OR
Send Mail
or post to 1 Million Women’s Facebook page

Entries open April 11 and close May 9.

Prizes:

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

  • Costa, how was it that you viewed your relative at her graduation, via the computer? My Nephew is graduating in May in America and it would be so cool if we could watch it here in Oz, Love your posts, thankyou

  • I would like to enter however the prize would not be relevant as both my Nana’s have passed away. Wonder if we can choose someone else.

  • It should be to encourage young women AND men. They both shop, cook, eat and have garbage bins. Sorry, I know it’s a One Million Women campaign but it’s ignoring half the population. Just my opinion.

  • I have lots of Nanna tips (both Mum & Nanna gone). Spent holidays on the farm in the Riverina. One ingredient I would change is lard (the dripping pot) to oil – preferably indigenous oil such as macadamia.

  • I would enter… But my mum passed away in Feb last year. My dad died in May. My mum in law in 2011. I lost my Nanna when I was 8. And my other one before I was born. It always brings tears to my eyes that I no longer have parents

  • Also to take the stamen out of lillies so they don’t pollinate… Hence longer flowers

  • If the eggs are beginning to turn, make a slice or cake and add lots of peppermint flavoring to hide the taste/smell (not sure I would recommend it as such)
