Nude Food

‘During a dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench that purportedly reached 35,849 feet, Dallas businessman Victor Vescovo claims to have found a plastic bag. And it’s not even the first time: It’s the third time plastic has been documented in the deepest explored part of the ocean.’ 15/5/19

Whilst this may seem overwhelming we can do our bit to help solve this worldwide problem.

So what small thing can we do to help save our planet? Here is a suggestion!

‘Nude Food’ is a popular term in schools and preschools.  But what exactly is ‘Nude Food’?

Simply put, it’s food without excess packaging. Usually, this means food that is not processed, often making it a healthier and more environmentally friendly option.

Nude Food includes a wide array of options, as long as there is no extra packaging.  This could include:

  • A sandwich in a reusable container
  • A sectioned lunch box with snacks in compartments
  • Yoghurt in a reusable container
  • Muesli bars and snack in reusable containers and wraps
  • Berries in a reusable container

Why Nude Food?

Each year in SA, families of primary school aged children spend more than $3.5 million on individually packaged items, collectively throwing away over 1.5 million yoghurt suckers, 3 million small tubs and 11 million zip-lock bags—that’s enough zip-lock bags laid flat to reach from Adelaide to Ceduna and back!
