Comment devenir “eco-friendly” au Liban? Comment viser le “zéro déchet”?
Composter, remplacer les matières non organiques par leur équivalent en tissu, bannir l’usage du plastique, fabriquer sa propre lessive avec de bonnes vieilles recettes de grand-mère, opter pour des contenants réutilisables..
Intégrons des choix écologiques, équitables et solidaires à notre quotidien. Nous pouvons tous faire une différence.. un geste à la fois!

Congratulations for this incredibly well deserved recognition! Keep up the great work!

What can we do about Lebanon’s food waste problem and waste disposal crisis ? Some individuals have taken this matter into their own hands to find solutions.
“Eat Save Love” is an event organized by Diana Fayad in conjunction with the Beirut-based NGO ACT_4Tomorrow
(Active Advocacy of Communities for Tomorrow). A pop-up restaurant (hosted by GardenState)
where the menu (developed by chefs Bob Deeb and Tina Wazirian) was based on surplus food from supermarkets!
This is such a great initiative to raise awareness, reduce food waste and fight hunger in Lebanon.
