Zero Waste Brunch takes place in Bratislava

On the 4th of September, FOODRUS partner Free Food organised a zero waste brunch in Bratislava.

The event, which ran from 10:00 until 15:00, was organised for the general public with the goal to raise awareness about food waste and present new ideas on how the public can waste less food.

The meals were prepared by a ‘zero waste’ chef and there was also a food waste related quiz. Later in the day there was a workshop to show the members of the public how to make beeswax wraps and a brief lecture by Petra Slezakova from Zero Waste Slovakia.


The event ended with a discussion featuring Lucia Balakova from “Living Garden” (a local social enterprise) about how kitchen waste can play a role in improving the quality of composting soil.

The success of the zero waste brunch was not just visible from the positive reaction from the attendees but also in the sustainable way in which the event was organised. Just some of the sustainable achievements from the event:

  • All surplus food was donated to two charities
  • Beverages were served in special bioplastic glasses (called nonoilen)
  • All remaining waste was biodegradable and so ended up in a composting plant nearby
