There’s another mural up in Music City, but this one has an important message: waste less food.
As a part of the Waste Less murals project, Urban Green Lab has partnered with Patagonia Nashville and Nathan Brown Creative Works to install two murals on the store’s windows, urging Nashvillians to waste less food. The murals’ message is tied to the active nature of the outdoor apparel store, showcasing that food gives us energy and encouraging Nashville to waste less.
The first mural in the project can be seen on the Bandywood Drive side of the Kroger in Green Hills to celebrate the beauty of food and inspire shoppers to reduce food waste.
Urban Green Lab’s Waste Less murals project is a part of the larger Nashville Food Waste Initiative, in partnership with the Environmental Law Institute, to drive citywide policies and strategies that reduce food waste by preventing wasted food, rescuing surplus food for those in need, and composting and recycling food scraps to build healthy soil.
Celebrating its 15th year, Urban Green Lab is a Nashville-based nonprofit working to teach Nashville communities how to live sustainably in places where culture is formed - classrooms, households, and workplaces.
