Love Festivals, Hate Waste

Tackling food waste was firmly on the menu at Scotland’s first Eat & Drink Festival, taking place alongside the Ideal Home Show Scotland over the May bank holiday weekend (26-29 May) at Glasgow’s SEC.

Zero Waste Scotland partnered with the brand new festival’s Foodie Lab to encourage Scots to prevent food ending up needlessly in the bin.

We were delighted to team up with Chef Neil Forbes of newly-named Restaurant of the Year Cafe St Honoré, who took to the demonstration stage over the course of the weekend to share his expertise, including cooking three delicious new recipes he created specifically for Love Food Hate Waste.

Restaurant of the Year Winner Neil Forbes of Cafe St Honore and Love Food Hate Waste's Ylva Haglund launched new recipes at Scotland's first Eat and Drink Festival.

Zero Waste Scotland also had its very own ‘kitchen’ at the Ideal Home Show, where visitors could see upcycling demos and learn about recycling, re-use and tackling food waste. 

Visitors were treated to regular upcycling demos by Caroline from Upcycled World, She showed really simple jobs that anyone could do at home, including furniture painting with chalk paint, upcycling a picture frame and wall art from scrap wood.

Zero Waste Scotland’s Linda Mann shows off our fabulous upcycled table, from Revolve-certified Reconect Glasgow, upcycled by Pineapple Chunks Design, which visitors had the chance to win.
