ABOUT GIVE A FORK!

Give a Fork! is held in April each year. Whilst it’s officially all over for this year, you can stay up to date with news about the campaign by signing up to our e-news.

Let’s face it – environmentalism has an image problem… it’s not seen as sexy.

Food, well that’s sexy.

Just as well food and what we put on our fork happens to be one of the most significant ways we can make a difference to our environment. We’re currently trashing the planet through the way we consume food; takeaway coffee cups, lettuce in a bag, a raw deal for farmers, double beef pattie burgers… According to the EPA, food is the biggest contributor to our ecological-footprint, at around 30%, so there’s never been a better place to start.

The Give a Fork! campaign is held during April and gets people thinking about the environmental and ethical impact of the food we buy, whilst bringing the sexy back into caring.

#GREXY*    #GIVEAFORK

Coz we reckon it’s a whole lot sexier to take care of the planet than it is to trash it.

#GREXY - IT'S A REAL WORD...

Holly_900x800Well not really, but what else do you call someone who is doing their greenie thing with an extra dose of HOT!

#GREXY is that guy you see at your local grocer with the cloth bag swung casually over his shoulder.

#GREXY is the woman in the power suit asking to have her latte-to-go in a keep cup.

#GREXY is asking if the chicken’s free range.

#GREXY could be you…

* grexy /greksi/adj. used to describe a sexy or appealing person who is also a greenie.

CHOOSE A CHALLENGE

WE WANT A FOOD SYSTEM THAT IS…

The way our food is grown, manufactured and distributed is causing serious damage to our environment, farmers, animals, communities and health. With up to 60% of our personal eco-footprint embodied in the food that we buy, it’s never been more important to educate ourselves and our children about where our food comes from.

We must take action now
