Australian Catalogue : Autumn Winter 2010
Tupperware together with Do Something have joined forces to get people to save the environment and their wallet at the same time. Do Something is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to create positive social and environmental change. A recent study indicated that we throw away over three million tonnes of food every year. That's $5.2 billion worth of food. Some experts believe that we're throwing away at least 20% of the food we buy, the equivalent of buying five bags of groceries and throwing one away. Given the cost of today's food, this is clearly not sustainable for the family budget. Neither is it sustainable for the environment. When food waste rots in landfill it produces methane, a greenhouse gas that's 23 times more potent than the CO2 pouring out of your car's exhaust. The National Breast Cancer Foundation is one of the country's most respected charities. Tupperware Australia is proud to support this organisation as a platinum sponsor. The ultimate goal of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF) is to raise enough money to fund a cure for breast cancer. As Australia's leading national not-for-profit organisation established to fund all forms of research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer, the NBCF has a responsibility to ensure that the funds raised are used in the best possible way towards making this goal a reality. The NBCF is unique in its research funding as it is the only community organisation that awards funds specifically for research across the continuum of breast cancer - from genetics to treatment, to support and palliative care. Funds raised are directed to the best research in Australia - neither limited by state boundaries nor institutional policies. When we throw away food, we also waste all of the resources, fuel and energy that were used to get that food from the paddock to our plate. We throw away food because we forget about it. We leave it lingering in the depths of our fridges and cupboards. When we do use it, we use too much and even then we don't use the leftovers. It's far easier to throw out food and buy more. For decades Tupperware products have been used to stop food waste. It's not just about caring about food and saving money. It's about creating a sustainable future for our kids.

The NBCF recently achieved a new milestone having funded $55 million across 230 research programs since 1994.
