In November 2010, as part of European Week for Waste Reduction the eco committee weighed the waste that the pupils of the school had produced eating their lunch. People came to film us doing it, and we planned to reduce it by half the amount of waste. In March 2011 we weighed it again and we found out that…….we beat our goal!!!! Everyone was so happy and we will continue to weigh the waste until we beat our next goal. Hopefully, we will be able to cut our waste so much, that there will hardly be any at all.
We also produced a leaflet for parents to give them ideas about how to reduce waste in packed lunches.
