TAKE THE PLUNGE AGAINST FOOD WASTE
With the name Take the plunge against food waste, the Association of Companies of Mass Consumption, which has more than 25,000 members has set up a competition within the framework of its campaign ‘Food should not be wasted, make the most of it’ part of the initiative of the Ministry “More food, less waste”
We wanted to share this because there was a time when all the media were talking about food waste and how to tackle it, but this has to be a constant task, more than that, it should become a habit. Yet there are many people out there who forget this when they stop receiving the message.
The announcement of the competition Take the Plunge against Food Waste is on their Facebook page and is open to all adults who can contribute an idea which will help to fight against food waste in our country.
If you are interested in participating you still have time until the 15th May. The prize will be for the planet if we humans begin to think about its future and not about our present.
