Waste Reduction Week 2017: Make Your Food go Further

And did you know that 47 per cent of food waste happens at home? We all know food waste has major impacts on our environment and our economy. That's why in honour of Waste Reduction Week (October 16-22), Divert NS wants to help make your food go further.

Until October 27, submit your food waste tip and enter to win one of 10 prize packs that include $100 worth of Tupperware and $100 in Sobeys gift cards.
