Congratulations to the Eco Council Team for achieving the Bronze Award!
Here are some ideas to help us to become a more eco-friendly world:
- Get the children involved in sorting and recycling rubbish at home
- Use a garden composter - let the children add the waste and see the resulting compost
- Save energy by switching off electrical items that are not being used. Don't leave TVs on standby
- Encourage everyone to save water e.g. don't let the water run whilst cleaning your teeth
- Walk to and from school whenever possible
- Arrange to car share with another family if you cannot walk
