Alpine Food Waste Series

The Alpine Food Waste Series is an initiative of North East councils and alpine resorts in partnership with the North East Waste & Resource Recovery Group.

The aim of the project has been to create awareness about the alpine environments and the impact that food waste and litter can have on these important ecosystems. As a cherished place for thousands of visitors each year, the Victorian Alps are also home to some unique and sometimes rare plant and animal species. This series helps to explain what we can do to manage our impact on the natural environment and protect the species that live there.

The three-part series draws on the knowledge of wildlife, environmental, waste and sustainability experts – as well as some great information and advice from local school students!

Teaching resources are also available below to complement the videos and support their use within classrooms.
