WOW lunchbox stickers are great for classes doing the challenge and looking to bring Nude Food to reduce their packaging at school. Find out how you can receive your own stickers HERE. 

Tips to send Less to Landfill
  • Consider sending food and drink packaging home. ALL food and drink packaging that comes from home could be sent back home; in fact several sites currently do this. Food and Drink packaging makes up a quarter of the volume of school bins. Some schools now have no bins!
  • Do you have a regular waste-less or Nude Food day? Set up a day each week to encourage food without packaging. Run it all year round, just like the Less to Landfill challenge!
  • Paper towel and paper lunch bags may be composted in a composting system or in a council or commercial collection.
  • Did you know empty glue sticks can be recycled inside of a plastic milk bottle? Use up the glue first! Other bottle lids and caps can also be recycled in this way. Wait until the milk bottle is full of lids before putting it into the recycling bin.
The Yoghurt Challenge
  • In recent years the variety of single-serve packaged dairy products for younger consumers has increased dramatically. Consider options for reducing this packaging, while providing other benefits to your site, with ideas such as a yoghurt levy.
