As we continue to learn about our marine ecosystem, we are exploring how the health of our oceans and waterways is affected by human activity and use of resources.
Did you know that our households use 66,000 tonnes of plastic every year?! A shocking fact that we learnt by viewing sections of War on Waste.
We are now investigating the waste we are generating at school. We are conducting our own waste audit in each building, by emptying the contents of the rubbish bins; tallying the amount of recyclable objects (eg. drink bottles/cups), food scraps, paper and cardboard, stationary and plastic; then graphing the results.
- What were the results of your waste audit?
- What did you find most surprising, interesting or shocking?
- How can we help to reduce the amount of waste, particularly plastic waste, at school?
