Diet and Nutrition Topic Addressed: Nude Food Day Title of the WebQuest: A week without wrappers!
Today, food wrappers and packets are used to keep our food safe, clean, reliable and preserved so that it can be kept fresh for several days – or even longer if it can be frozen. However, sadly, most of the packaging that we use is not sustainable, reusable or recycled properly. A lot of our food comes packaged in single-use plastic wrappers, which can end up as litter on our streets, in our green spaces, in our cities and in our ocean. Going nude with your food – meaning reducing the food packaging waste – we produce can have a huge positive impact on protecting the environment, and the plants, animals and fish that we share planet Earth with.
