About 3,200 tonnes of food waste are disposed to the landfills in Hong Kong every day, which contributes to one-third of the total municipal solid waste. The canteens of tertiary institutions even produce 45 tonnes of food waste daily. Therefore, Greeners Action organized a training programme called “Save Food Ambassador” for tertiary students. They can have a deeper understanding and experience on food waste and food waste disposal through a series of activities. In order to further promote the culture of “Save Food” in the institutions, Greeners Action held an enrichement activity named “Amazing ways to reduce food waste”. Teenagers are invited to share their unique methods on reducing food waste on the Facebook page of Greeners Action (facebook.com/savefood). From 20th April to 26th June, we received nearly a hundred of great methods in food waste reduction in total which showed their unlimited creativity. The prizes for this competition are very special–winners can have a Green lunch with the artists at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
