In June 2021, CHANGE launched a new series of challenges called “Empty Your Dishes” on social media platforms to raise awareness about food waste and call on the community to take action to reduce this waste.

Every year, we waste about one-third of the world’s food. This waste is imposing severe consequences on the environment. Therefore, to reduce these burdens for the Earth, CHANGE challenges participants to say no to food waste through the challenge “Eat clean, live green.”

“Eat clean – Live green” is a challenge in the series of iChange Climate activities – CHANGE’s multi-year program to join hands with the community to reduce the harmful effects of climate change. Together, participants will reduce food waste and protect the environment by making small changes in their daily life, namely eating habits.

Every week, CHANGE will have a challenge for everyone surrounding the topic of reducing food waste. Challenges are simple but practical actions like eating all your food or creating dishes from leftovers in the fridge; thereby, participants will have a chance to win valuable rewards. By taking specific actions of the challenge, participants will form proper eating and consumption habits, avoid waste, and be more beneficial to the environment.
