We are in the process of applying for our second Green Schools Flag – the Energy Flag.
To achieve this we must retain our current flag for recycling by:
- Ensuring we are recycling as much of our waste as we can
- Ensuring we are recycling as well as we can
by using the REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE maxim:
REDUCE: Let’s be careful with our lunches
Beakers and (lunch) boxes are best.
Try not to use any packaging where possible:
– clingfilm and sandwich bags are not recyclable
-soft wrapping e.g. popcorn bags are not recyclable
-tinfoil is recyclable but do we need to use it?
REUSE: Try to reuse plastic bags, tinfoil, plastic bottles whenever we do use them
RECYCLE: clean, dry: paper, cartons, cardboard, strong plastic wrapping and bottles
Remember, recycling saves energy, key to our energy saving quest!
We will be keeping in touch, updating and sharing energy-saving tips with you. …
