Thank you for having taken part in the Green Office Consumer Habit questionnaire!

This year totally 144 students and staff (compared to 92 people last year) answered the WWF’s Consumer Habit questionnaire. After a few weeks we’ll get the result and we’ll get to know how good we are at saving the carbon dioxide emission and Arcada's ecological footprint.

Congratulations to the winner, who has been notified. A lovely Kånken backpack will be delivered shortly!

Tack för du deltog i Green Office konsumtionsbarometer!

Stort Grattis till vinnaren, som redan har meddelats. En ljuvlig Kånken ryggsäck levereras inom kort!

The Food Wasted campaign result

During the September campaign, Food & Co (restaurant Arcada) weighed the food waste. For one week, the food waste was weighed without our knowledge and the food waste was 52g/ serving. The following week Food the weighing and then the food waste was considerably less 41g/ serving.

You can easily influence the climate change with the amount of food waste, so what you take on the plate and not eat up affects every time. In Finland, we throw away food around 20–24 kg of food per person every year, appoximately 100 €.
