Nexus

Cricket-powered energy to help save the planet

By on Jun 7, 2019 in Blog |

Nexus students are really fired up to help to reduce the impact of climate change. As part of their recent homework, students have been asked to come up with some practical solutions to solve the problems of overpopulation and climate change. Archie and Jack have been investigating alternative sources of protein to reduce the climate impacts of farming for meat. They came across a company, ‘Eat Grub’ that promotes the use of insect protein as a more sustainable food source. The company sent through three boxes of their ‘cricket bars’ for the Nexus students to sample. We can’t wait to try them!

Well done to Archie and Jack for their brilliant engagement with this project. And look out for Eat Grub bars coming to a store near you. Apparently they taste delicious (and you can’t taste the crickets!)
