Waste Week 11th – 17th March 2013

Recycle binCome on Schools of Sussex get involved in Waste Week 2013

Waste Week is a fantastic opportunity to get the whole school learning about waste and thinking about how they can cut down on the amount of waste they produce, as well as how they can reduce the proportion that goes to landfill, by re-using, recycling and composting.

Waste Week is run by The Pod initiative, you can request a Waste Week campaign guide from them which will give you all the information you need to run Waste Week.

There are a number of ways parents and the local community can get involved in the schools waste campaign.

In addition to making learning fun for pupils, the Pod’s waste week activities fit in with many areas of the national curriculum. In 2013 Waste Week will have a big focus on Science and Engineering.

Taking part in Waste Week activities will also help your application for an Eco-Schools Recycle logoaward, whether you’re just starting out and ready for a bronze award or looking for a major project for your Green Flag Application. Download the Eco-Schools award guide now for more details.

Schools that sign up early will be the first to receive an invitation to join in The Pod new Science initiative.

And finally, if all that wasn’t enough – schools that take part in the next campaign could win a prize in the Waste Week draw – more details of the 2013 competitions 2will be available in January.

About Carrie Cort

My name is Carrie Cort, I set up Sussex Green Living out of concern for the way we humans are treating the planet which sustains us. With motherhood in 2008 came concern about environmental sustainability and a burning desire to learn how we can live more environmentally friendly lifestyles, in harmony with nature. I have always had a passion for the countryside, animals and the natural environment. Most of my career has been spent in marketing and communications, mainly within education and the landbased industries, latterly using the power of video communications. In an effort to help create a climate for change I decided to use my knowledge and digital skills to share ideas which anyone can adopt, saving money and the planet. I’m not an expert, just an ordinary person who is on a greening journey and wanting to pass on what I’ve learnt to others. Let’s all make some simple changes, become more resilient and try to lead simpler, less materialistic and consumerist way of life.
