Nude Food Day
May 11, 2018
Mt Carmel turned into a sea of green on Tuesday for Mt Carmel’s Nude Food Day.
You are no doubt aware that this term’s topic, throughout the school, is Trash to Treasure/Sustainability (We use the Earth’s resources with respect).
Nude Food Day seemed to be the perfect way to kick things off, showing how easy it is to reduce and reuse when we try. It was great to see 245 Mt Carmel kids with reusable containers, sturdy drink bottles and we also spotted a few beeswax wrapped sandwiches and snacks. Since we began our WasteWise journey in 2012 we have seen a steady decline in the amount of litter brought to school each day but there are still several chip packets, biscuit wrappers, drink cartons with straws and Glad Wrap snacks/sandwiches which make their way into some lunch boxes on a regular basis. Maybe the fantastic achievement of today could become a regular routine for all our Mt Carmel families.
Our winning beeswax wrap designs are selling fast but there are still some left (on sale in our online shop) so why not ditch the plastic wrap for good and invest in an earth friendly alternative!
