ZERO WASTE SCHOOL
The main focus of our action was WASTE last year. The eco-committee established a system of recycling paper, plastic, and batteries several years ago, therefore we were looking for ways of moving forward in this matter.
We were inspired by Bea Johnson who promotes ZERO WASTE LIFESTYLE with her family of four. As a result, we organised a series of activities to inspire the school community, e.g. we invited a Slovak Bea Johnson, Mrs. Males to school and we prepared ZERO WASTE SNACK WEEK to show students that with a bit of planning they can avoid using plastic bags and other plastic waste when they prepare their snacks. Year 13 students helped us with promoting plastic free lifestyle to parents through regular articles in the newsletter and school blog.
THIS YEAR ZERO WASTE SCHOOL
We would like to continue with reducing waste produced at our school this year. The area that we will focus on will be the school events. We realised that when organising any events for the school community in the past, we did not take any measures to reduce the amount of waste produced and we ended up with a lot of plastic waste that did not even get recycled many times. We would like to involve the management, students, and parents to bring a change.
