One way to reduce waste at school is too use reusable lunch bags and fill your lunch with reusable containers stell spoons and forks instead of plastic flimsy ones. And better yet it would be better to use refilleble water bottles instead of plastic ones. The school can et up more water fountains in schools to reduce the waste of plastic water bottles. Also schools can introduce healthy eating habbits like no pops and chips this reduce's the waste too.
THE 2nd WAY SUPPLIES
We always think we need new supplies every year what if we reuse some of our supplies like refillable pens or pencils or even duo tangs that have not been fully used. The other main thing is printer cartages which can be refilled and used again. Did you know that it takes 1000 years for cartages to decompose in a landfill. This can help a lot in terms of waste and you also would save money too.
We use a lot of paper every day at school and we only use one side of what about the other side. A way that we could all save paper at school is probably reusing paper like goose paper for those who don't know what goose paper is, it is say some one used half or one side of the paper instead of recycling it we could put it in the goose bin for someone else who needs it. If your class doesn't have a goose bin I suggest that you and your class get one. This can have the reduction of paper and sve our trees.
THE 5Th WAY CAFETERIA AND LUNCHS
Last tell your teachers to also reduce by using reusable cups, mugs and plates instead of plastic and Styrofoam cups and plates. In the cafeteria they can also have a testing session for new menus so that it can reduce the food waste.
THE 6Th WAY CLASSROOMS
Reduce waste in our classrooms by using digital device or a white board instead of using paper. Encourage students to use both sides of paper before recycling it. Staff can read the documents than printing them also school news letters can be sent via emails than using paper. Try to use paper towels only when need so and not a very large amount only the amount you need. This stuff will help you to be an ECO free school or class.
THE 7Th WAY DECORATIONS
THE 8Th WAY A COMPOSTER
You can buy a composter for your school where the children’s foods wastes that go in there are very simpler to the green bin which goes in our homes. This can be used as fertilizer for the schools playground and garden and empty yogurt cups and toilets paper rolls can be used as for the kid’s art classes instead of being recycled.
THE 9th WAY SCHOOL FURNITURE
INTRODUCTION
It's everyones combined effort in school to REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. This helps by reducing the amount of waste in the enviorment and help the school to save money.
Our school furniture can be repaired and painted so it can last longer. Also we can set our school photocopier to default as double sided printing only so you don’t waste the other half of paper. Another tip is to keep scrap paper tray in the office next to the photocopier so that the office can use it to write quick notes instead of wasting a whole sheet of paper and more importantly we save the trees so we can breathe.
THE LAST WAY NUMBER 10 EDUCATE
CONCLUSION
fun facts: no wonder they used to use fountain pens
Buy school supplies that are made out of 100% of recycling materials. The suppliers can deliver the items in the returnable or recyclable containers. This helps with the major waste for big items.
If the school has the same theme for two years they can still reuse the decorations for a prom or party or any function they have in the school.
Educate the students and staff about recycling items such as (recycling bin, compose bin, garbage) for example hazarded waste such as batteries and lightbulbs are easily to be thrown in the garbage. School can inform the kids on a waste success if the waste was reduced on a yearly bases. Also maybe e we can have a recycling day no recyciling items are not aloud to be brought in school.
Everyone should encourage each other to participate in their part and get parent involved too. Also we can also show this by reducing waste. Thanks everyone for listening and i hope you enjoyed my presentation and I hope you learned something and have a nice day.
