HELP REDUCE OUR SCHOOL LUNCH WASTE!
On Tuesday of week 4 room 3 kept our lunch wrappers and other waste. We sorted our waste into piles and displayed it in a graph. The graph shows that the majority of rubbish in our lunch boxes was glad wrap. There was 15 pieces of glad wrap, 11 bar wrappers, 9 food scraps, 4 plastic pottles, 2 chip packets, 1 tin and 1 terta pack.
We cannot use most of this rubbish. We have a scrap bin which feeds the teachers chickens and pigs but the rest goes in bags to the land fill.
Litter also can get blown out of the school bins and into the rivers and lakes and clogs up our gutters. Pollution we see is called visual pollution. It makes our school and community look messy and no one likes playing in a playground full of rubbish.
This photo is an example of a litter less lunch, containers that can be used over and over again.
Hopefully you start having litter free lunches and we can all work together to reduce our waste. If we all look after our own back door, we could make the community and Rotorua area a cleaner, tidier place to be.
