Have you met Milk and the other fun food characters at The General Story digital display in the Adelaide Central Market?
An interactive digital display has opened in the Adelaide Central Market as a fun way to learn how you can reduce food waste.
You can meet and interact with the digital characters Milk, Bread, Banana, Eggplant and Lamb Chop to learn where they came from, how they were produced and why they often get wasted.
“Food waste is such an important issue for our community and for the environment. It’s great to see this display helping people understand why food waste matters and what they can do about it,” said OzHarvest State Manager Hayley Everuss.
You can interact with your favourite foods to find out where they come from – and how not to waste them!
Food waste contributes 5% of the total carbon emissions in the City of Adelaide. Food waste also costs you money – the average Australian family throws out 20% of the food they purchase, worth about $1000 each year. Reducing your food waste is a practical way you can save money and play your part in making Adelaide carbon neutral.
The General Story is a free display that will be open during normal Adelaide Central Market trading hours. It is delivered as part of the Carbon Neutral Adelaide initiative and is a collaboration between the Smart City Studio, OzHarvest, the Central Market Authority and Carbon Neutral Adelaide.
So go along to meet Milk and all his friends to find out how you can help! And for more free fun CLICK HERE to make your own milk carton and colour in your favourite foods activity sheets.
