Plastic Awareness Event thank you
A huge thank you to everyone who helped at and came along to our Plastic Awareness Event on Friday. There was a great turn out and a real buzz about finding ways to minimise our plastic waste. It was great for the eco champions to get the opportunity to share what they’ve been up to and to see people finding out more about eco alternatives.
We shared lots of information and ideas about ‘How to Pack a (single-use) Plastic Free Packed Lunch’ ready for our launch of plastic free packed lunches in January. Please find the savoury flapjack recipe here and beeswax wrap making instructions here. There is lots of useful information on packing a waste free packed lunch here. Paper copies of these will be available from the office later in the week.
We have also been busy working with DCC Waste Education officers to do an audit of the schools waste. We’ll be sharing the outcomes shortly and finding ways to reduce the waste that we’re creating and make sure that more of it gets recycled.
Eco Champions will be delivering raffle prizes to the winners on Thursday.
A big thanks to Ms Moore for doing a wonderful job organising this amazing event.
