This year EWWR in Northern Ireland will be running the theme of food waste in terms of the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) and promoting the Love Food Hate Waste campaign.
Antrim Grammar Schools’s participation in EWWR has helped contribute to an exciting week of food waste reduction activities organised throughout Northern Ireland.
The campaign involved raising awareness of the issue of food waste, learning more about the ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ Initiative in Northern Ireland and taking practical actions to reduce food waste.
