Shopping Smarts Buying groceries in bulk saves money, time, petrol and reduces packaging waste. The challenge lies in keeping this food fresh so that it’s consumed rather than thrown away. When food ends up in landfill, it becomes a large contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Some experts believe that we throw away at least 20% of the food we buy, that’s $5.2 billion worth of food. Tupperware’s durable Modular Mates® offer a reusable, sustainable option for preserving food and the environment. They give consumers the power to immediately reduce economic and environmental waste. Play Time 85% of disposable packaging, plastic wrap and various other consumer goods end up in landfill. Reduce this figure by sending the family off to school and work with Tupperware’s environmentally friendly lunch storage solutions. Tupperware’s Sandwich Keepers, Fuel Packs and Lunch Sets will keep lunches and snacks, fresh and secure all without the need for plastic wrap. 15 A student who takes one sandwich and two snacks to school wrapped in plastic every day will contribute over 100 metres of wrap to landfill. Times this by a small school of 400 students and this one school is contributing over 40,000 metres of wrap per year.
