Planet Friendly Food – recipes that won’t cost the Earth

This Valentine’s day, as part of 💚 The Climate Coalition’s Show the Love campaign 💚, we’re celebrating food and four great ways that we can change what we buy and eat to reduce our contribution to climate change: minimise food waste, eat seasonal food, eat locally grown produce, and eat less meat. 

With the help of some of Bath’s best loved foodies, we’ve collected recipes that use locally and seasonally sourced ingredients, showcase vegan and plant-based food, and reduce food waste. They will not only tickle your taste buds, but help you put new, healthy eating habits into practice that are good for you, and the planet!

Next up in our #PlanetFriendlyFood recipe collection is a vibrant, deliciously textured roasted butternut squash hummus which comes from the awesome Goodness Grazers. We’re continuing to #showthelove for #plantbased recipes – reducing our meat consumption and eating more fruit, veg, seeds and nuts is a great way to reduce the impact of our food consumption on the environment.

Working with schools

 

Do you want to access up to the minute resources to teach about climate change and related topics? Or to hear directly from an explorer, scientist or those living in the Arctic?

WWW offers schools a unique way to teach about climate change by providing resources that meet cross-curricula requirements, as well as bringing the issue to life for students through direct contact with those who have witnessed climate change in the Arctic for themselves.

WWW’s schools programme strives to inspire students to care about climate change, the impact on our planet, and to engage in activities that will reduce our footprint on the Earth.

For more information about how your school can work with WWW visit our schools page or download our SCHOOLS LEAFLET.
