“ZERO WASTE CULTURE IS EXPANDED”
TOBB Bursa KGK President Sevgi Saygın emphasized the importance of spreading the zero waste culture in terms of sustainable social, environmental and economic development and poverty reduction. Noting that they wanted to raise awareness about a waste-free and waste-free kitchen with the event held at BTSO Kitchen Academy, Saygın said, “Tons of food is thrown away every day around the world. Apart from the economic side of this, it also has a great burden on conscience. A great deal of effort is spent on every food item from the field to our tables. In order to prevent waste, we must first evaluate when the products we use in the kitchen are truly garbage. Products seen as waste in the kitchen can turn into different dishes. Today, we had the opportunity to experience this with our chefs here. We believe that the zero waste culture will continue to develop in our country with the Zero Waste project carried out under the auspices of Ms. Emine Erdoğan, and we thank BTSO Kitchen Academy for this beautiful event.” said.
TOBB Bursa KGK members also received information from BTSO Board Member Irmak Aslan about the vision of BTSO Kitchen Academy and the work done.
