The program of the National Food Chain Safety Office (Nébih), the No Leftovers program, is also announcing its Easter Greening application at Easter this year. The purpose of the multi-category competition is to draw attention to the importance of reducing food waste and responsible animal husbandry as the holiday season approaches. Entries are accepted until April 5.

In addition to preventing food wastage, the experts of No Waste want to draw attention to the fact that the majority of non-preventable food waste (e.g. peels of vegetables and fruits, coffee grounds) can also be used in an environmentally friendly way. In addition to composting, farm animals and companion animals can also help us. For example, the dry feed of rabbits and poultry can be supplemented with pieces of vegetables and fruit peels remaining during processing.

This year, the application also wants to draw attention to responsible animal husbandry

At Easter, many people still get rabbits and chicks as pets. However, we only advise this to those who are aware of the particular animal’s needs and have a well-thought-out long-term plan regarding its further fate. As a guest expert in this field, Zoltán Hanga, the spokesperson of the Capital Zoo and Botanical Garden, will share useful information and advice in the coming weeks on the social pages of the program “Without Nothing”.
