"Ecological" cooking courses

The "Kap Vert" kot-à-projet (theme-based flat share project) [Catholic University of Leuven] offers "ecological" cooking courses based on 4 key words: organic, local, seasonal and vegetarian. In the morning, they collect unsold items from market stalls and use them to cook, with whoever is interested, an original menu comprising a starter, a main course and a dessert. An interesting way of discovering new recipes.

Delivery of organic baskets
Delivery of organic baskets

5 young people are fighting in their own way against the ravages of the agro-business by offering deliveries (by bicycle) of local, organic, seasonal products. They also offer the option of 100% Belgian products or a mixture of Belgian and European products (from France and Italy). Again as a counter to the mass agro-business, markets selling local, organic products are held every Saturday in Saint-Gilles [Brussels]. "L'heureux Nouveau" offers organic baskets for next day delivery.

"Car-free May" challenge

According to the Brussels Institute for Environmental Management, "65% of journeys in Brussels are over distances of less than 5 km, and 25% over distances of less than 1 km. The shorter the journey, the greater the pollution and the more costly the fuel!". The "Car-free May" challenge promoted by the non-profit organisation Green Caps invites participants to replace a maximum number of car journeys with 100km of travel using more sustainable means of transport (bicycle, walking, train, bus, etc.).
