Waste = food Lesson one: Introducing waste = food Learning objectives: To rethink our attitudes towards packaging as redundant waste To develop circular economy thinking: waste = food
What happens to our waste?
Let’s rethink waste Using circular economy thinking we could rethink litter. What if the litter we dropped benefited the environment? Could we rethink packaging to be completely biodegradable? Have a look at: These biodegradable paper sticks are impregnated with seeds.
