We hope to have our first green flag very soon, which is for Waste and Litter.
We have looked at our waste disposal throughout the school.
Using the maxim: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, we are trying to :
1 REDUCE the amount of packaging we bring to school with our lunches.
So: Let’s not use: Tinfoil, clingfilm, plastic bags or kitchen paper.
Let’s use lunchboxes only.
Let’s use beakers rather than plastic bottles.
All other waste/packaging, we hope to REUSE or RECYCLE.

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. …
