This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Social enterprise This is Rubbish presents an event designed to highlight the scandal of food waste.

The Exotic Excess Cafe will include a 'help yourself' fruit bowl, 'place mat pledges' and a 'menu of activism'.

The place mat pledges with either community or personal pledges against food waste - will be hung in the cafe on the This is Rubbish washing line for all to see.

Walkabout performers will be mingling with shoppers along Lower Marsh - serving tropical fruit jelly and chatting about food waste.

From 2pm This is Rubbish will perform a 'communal fruit salad toss for the masses'. Members of the public are invited to take part and trade in a 'place mat pledge' for some free fruit salad and marvel at the glittering Exotic Excess tropical fruit installations aimed at highlighting the tragedy of food waste and excess.
