In this activity, you will learn a bit about the environmental impact of our food packaging, and then you will be asked to keep a log for one week of your normal habits and routines, with the aim of counting all of the food packaging waste you produce! You will then repeat this activity, and try for one week to reduce the amount of food packaging waste you produce! At the end, you will add up the difference between the packaging waste you produce when you are consciously trying to use less plastic and packaging, and how much you would usually produce in a normal week!
You can share these figures and facts with your classmates! It will be interesting to see who has saved the most packaging waste by the end of the second week!
