These are the final photos from Term 3. You can see that
there’s been a real improvement since week one, but there are still lots
of troublesome plastic bags and packets.
Next term we begin to recycle paper as part of our Enviroschool
focus. I wonder if we could concentrate on getting rid of all the
plastic we bring to school as wrappers and packets for our morning tea

at these two photos it seems we have managed to reduce the amount of
food waste and gladwrap that we bring to school, but we still have a
problem with chippy packets. Well done to Jacob for putting his
chips into a reusable container and leaving the packet at home.
Do you remember how to reduce the number of chippy packets used?
At Xtreme Waste we were told that we could buy a big packet of
chips and put them into reusable bags or containers. This means
that only one large bag goes into landfill instead of a big bag and
twelve little ones. I have noticed that the little Glad boxes with
blue lids have a number 5 on them. Which means they can’t be
recycled in Hamilton…

It didn’t take long to sort our waste this week.
There was an uneaten LCM and fruit roll up, but they were taken home
to eat later. I think we should try for a plastic free Friday

Room 9 have started to look at our school environment and find ways to make it better.
One of the ways we can improve it is by reducing the amount of waste
and rubbish we have at school. We started by collecting our waste
on Friday*. Here’s what we discovered (click the picture for a LARGER view).
What do you think? Is there anything we could easily get rid
of? Which items can be recycled or composted? Which items
can’t be reused or recycled? What would a week of waste look like?
