zero waste

On Thursday Kath from Enviro Schools came to visit us. We decided to collect all the rubbish from one day at our school and see how much there was.

We tipped out all the rubbish onto big blue tarps and sorted it out into different types of waste (we used gloves!) food waste, paper, plastics, glass and metal, recyclable paper. We then weighed back type – we had the most in the other waste category.

We learnt that we need to recycle more at school! We learnt that rubbish gets really smelly and messy!

We will be looking at some solutions to this problem in our writing this week.
