Our Food Waste Coloring Book

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A lot of folks are spending time with their children at home these days, and kids need activities just like avocados need lime juice. That’s why we created a free coloring book all about food waste! 

The world always needs more coloring books, so we gave the EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy a kid-friendly makeover. Tackling food waste through coloring is less strange than it sounds, since stopping food waste starts at home and education is the first step.

This is a free coloring book for the kids in your life, and for the kid inside you, too! Download the coloring book, print it out, and have fun coloring in your vision of a less wasteful world. Be sure to post pictures of your masterpieces and tag us at @imperfectfoods!

    Can we share this with our 5 and 7 year old grandchildren? Their dad teaches organic gardening to middle school kids, so I know they’d love it.

    At my Montessori school ages 3 – 6 I teach a lot of recycling, composting, repurposing and learning about healthy ways to live and protect our planet. You guys have supplied wonderful resources for me to use., Ms. Debbie

    Printed it on the back of junk mail for the win. I’m going to color them over the holidays with my 85-year-old mother.
