We reduce waste by collecting the unsold food directly from the retailers that would otherwise have thrown to the trash. The food we collect include fresh vegetables, fruits and food that are near their expiry dates.
The food collected will be sorted and processed. The food becomes 6-course vegetarian lunch meals that are served regularly to the unemployed workers in the CTU Training Centre in Taipo. The lunches also help to promote the idea of low carbon life style.
Some of the food will also be sent to other non-profit making organizations or those in need, saving them their already scarce resources for other uses.
Food waste and inedible food will be sent to organic farm and turn to compost, demonstrating that even “garbage” could be useful to the environment.
