Dr. Shane Colgan gave this a plug at our Awards Ceremony last night. It looks like a very good programme which hopefully might get us all to change behaviour in relation to wasting food and money.
Waste Watchers on RTE One this Sun 8 Dec at 18:30
To all our friends and supporters,
Just to let you know that Stop Food Waste features in a documentary on RTE One this weekend. We’d appreciate if you could spread the word and encourage everyone to tune in, follow @Stop_Food_Waste on Twitter (#WasteWatchers #FoodWaste) and please retweet and favourite some of our Tweets. We are also on Facebook (www.facebook.com/stopfoodwaste).
This summer Stop Food Waste asked the people of Killorglin to lead the way nationally by demonstrating how, through making some small changes in the way we manage food in our homes and businesses, we can reduce the amount of food we waste and save money at the same time. Many of you will know that RTE filmed the work we did and at long last we are delighted that the documentary will air this weekend.
Tune in to ‘Waste Watchers’ on RTE One this Sun 8 Dec at 18:30 to see how the people of Killorglin got on when they put their minds to it. Philip Boucher-Hayes tackles the problem of food waste, with statistics suggesting an average of 700 Euro a year is wasted on unwanted groceries in every Irish household. The presenter encourages businesses and residents in Killorglin in County Kerry to develop new habits, in the hope that towns across Ireland will follow their lead and start tackling the problem.
