The Nigerian Conservation Foundation joined the rest of the world to celebrate the 2013 World Environment Day.
With the support from the Nigerian LNG Limited, students from different schools in Bonny Island Community in Rivers State gathered at the Banquet Hall of LNG on June 5, 2013 to celebrate the annual event with the theme “Think, Eat and Save".
This year's theme is aimed at discouraging the wastage of food and to promote food loss campaign while urging people to reduce their food print.
In their presentations with different costumes to depict the theme of the year, the children persuaded people to think before eating and hence contributing in saving the environment.
The participating students in different age categories competed in poems and in fauna and flora dress competitions to create awareness on food wastage. The presentations were centered on the need to take corrective measures right from homes to reduce food wastage by imbibing the culture of saving and eating sustainably.
The students went home with various prizes and awards for their brilliant performance at the event.
