TWPS War on Playground Waste

TWPS War on Playground Waste!

Term 2 2021

On Friday the Environment Captains organised a rubbish audit because we wanted to see how much rubbish we collect in a normal school day. Year 6 helped us empty all of the green bins around the school onto a mat - we were so surprised to see how much rubbish there was - full uneaten sandwiches, lots of really good fruit, heaps of packets of biscuits and chips. We even found a whole lunchbox that had everything in it! We are aiming to reduce the amount of rubbish we have at school so please try and help us by not wrapping things in plastic and sending lots of packaged snacks. We will take another photo at the end of the term to see if we have reduced our waste. 

Kyle, 6A on behalf of the TWPS Environment Captains
