Dear Parent,

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. …
