Green Team Eco-code:  Everyone is on Green Team

Term 1 Week 2 Look at our new School "Eco-code"   

1. We will all learn about stopping climate change (and take the following actions…).    

2. Switch off lights and electrical equipment when not being used - to reduce energy use.

3. Put all litter in the correct bin: landfill, card/paper, recycle-able plastic, foil/tins/glass, compost/food waste - to reduce litter and landfill waste.

4. Use re-usable bags and bottles and choose not to use single-use plastics (bags, bottles, containers) - to reduce waste.

5. Use less paper and reduce recycling waste by printing and copying fewer sheets, and using both sides before recycling.
