BTN- War on Waste School







War on Waste School

This article was about Adelaide Primary School taking charge about Recycling after watching an inspiring video.

Australia used to be the best country when it came to waste but now we are one of the biggest waste producers with 41 million tonnes of rubbish created every year, which is 41,000,000,000 kilograms. They were asking a cafe to give a discount for people who brought in their own reusable cups instead of asking for a throw away one since it has a little bit of plastic in them. They also bought bags for the school to eliminate plastic. Plastic bags take years to break down but these ones that the school got are better.

Can they do anything else to help recycling and getting rid of plastic? Was the whole class in one this idea or was it just a couple of people?

I understand why they would want to make Australia a better recycler user.
