Halloween event on campus promotes food waste reduction

Students and staff learned about recycling and how to minimise wastage at a Halloween event on campus last week.

Our Social Impact Team organised the Pumpkin Rescue event to show that hollowing out a Halloween pumpkin doesn’t have to involve throwing away perfectly good food. IT was all part of the University’s commitment to sustainability and our #WasteLeics campaign.

Participants had the chance to not only carve their own pumpkin, but also to try some tasty free pumpkin soup. There was also information about the University’s new recycling bin signage system as well as lots of help and advice from the Social Impact Team and the Plan-It Change Society.
