Why did we do this? It sounds really strange!
Well, we were checking a few main things:
- We wanted to see how much waste we produced in our school in 1 day so we could work out roughly how much we would produce in 1 week. (This is called our baseline.)
- We wanted to see if we were putting the right waste in the correct bin
- We wanted to see if we could make any improvements or reduce our waste
What do you think?
Does this seem like a lot of waste? Do you think we could do better in our school? How?
*Hint: Maybe these could be some magic words for St. Brigid's!
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE and RETHINK!!
Why not put your thoughts or suggestions in our Green Schools suggestion box?
Remember to write them on re-used paper!! ;-)
Better still, save paper and leave us a comment on this page!
We will be back next week with the results! How did your class do?
How did the teachers do.......?????!!!
Finally for now, here are some images of the Green Schools Committee hard at work last Thursday!
