Turn The World Teal This May

May is Food Allergy Awareness Month, a great time to spread the word about food allergies. Understanding food allergies and identifying allergic reactions can and does help save lives.

This year, we have teamed up once again with turnitteal.org to turn the world teal, the signature color of food allergy awareness.

‘Turn it Teal’, founded by Cleveland, Ohio native Stephanie Lowe in 2014, was created with the goal of lighting as many prominent monuments and buildings as possible
to highlight Food Allergy Awareness Week, (May 13 -19) an initiative intended to educate the public regarding the seriousness of food allergies.

The lighting of the Sydney Town Hall last year made history, being the first building outside of North America to turn teal in support of food allergy awareness.

TRIGGER Food Allergy Awareness founder, Grace Farah said: “It was so exciting to see the stunning Sydney Town Hall lit in Teal. It’s a great initiative –
people see the building lit and it starts a conversation, but it also shows Australian kids and families dealing with food allergies that Sydney cares and Australia cares. This year, the hope is to see as many other countries, cities and towns come on board and turn their buildings teal and show their support.”

“How great would it be to not only see Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, W.A, Tasmania and the Territory ‘Turn it Teal’, but also New Zealand, London, Paris, Italy, China, India, the UK, Europe and Asia?”
