Could Bristol become the first UK city to achieve gold sustainability status?

By making a few small changes this year, you can help Bristol achieve gold status from the Sustainable Food City Awards and bag some tasty prizes

The Going for Gold campaign is challenging businesses and individuals across Bristol to make changes in six areas of food production and consumption, in order to become a glad-standard Sustainable Food City. 

These areas include buying better, food waste, urban growing, food equality, community action and – the one that you can get stuck into right away – eating better. 

This specific part of the campaign encourages individuals across the city to make small improvements in how they buy and consume food in a bid for an overall positive impact on environmental and human health. There are five suggested Eating Better goals that include carrying a reusable water bottle, learning a new dish to cook-from-scratch and cutting down on sugar. 

Already one of only four cities to achieve silver status, Bristol could be the first city to obtain gold sustainability credentials if enough goals are recorded on the Eat Better for Bristol website. By logging a goal throughout January and February, you will also have the chance to win a £30 Good Sixty voucher, Reg the Veg fruit box and a stash of goodies from Zero Green.
