E-Club: Reduce your Eco-Foodprint Campaign!

By January 26, 2015GIN & Clubs, Green

During the month of December, the Environmental Club performed a food wastage audit for the 6th floor cafeteria during the Upper School’s lunch hour (Grades 9 to 12). Our aim was to raise awareness about the negative effects of food waste on the local and global community, and to assess the severity of our school’s wastage habits, while holding a simultaneous exhibition to visually represent the amount of food waste generated daily. Ultimately, we were able to compile our data into a report that we sent to other schools, and will hopefully be taking action to reduce our portion sizes and improve our menus in light of the comments that we received. Also, in order to fully round out our event, the E-Club has decided to donate all of its revenue from its Family Fun Fair sale to Feeding Hong Kong, the monetary equivalent of 44 bags of 10kg rice, in the hope that it will go towards feeding those in need.
