It’s only a few weeks until the Plastic Free July challenge.

In 2013 over 4,000 individuals, schools, businesses and organisations participated in the challenge.

Let’s make 2014 even bigger!

binära optioner di What is Plastic Free July?

Plastic Free July was developed in Perth, Western Australia and since its inception in 2011, has spread across Australia and Internationally.

It aims to raise awareness of the amount of plastic in our lives by encouraging people to eliminate the use of single-use plastic during July each year.

Did you know that Australians alone discard 1 million tonnes of plastic each year?  And in America, 28 million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in landfills. Once there, it can take up to 1,000 years to decompose! And in addition to the plastics in landfills, it’s estimated that there are 100 millions tons of plastic debris floating around in the oceans threatening the health and safety of marine life.

Have a nude food day
Nude food lunch days are days when students (and parents!) try their best to pack a lunch box without single-use disposable plastic
. You could have a nude food day per week or if you’re up for it, a whole month of nude food.

Conduct a bin audit

See just how much single-use plastic your school has been using. You could take a photo of the plastic in your bin or even get your class to count/weigh the waste if you are keen.

Create a class dilemma bag

A dilemma bag is where the students and teachers place the plastics they found hardest to avoid. You could create graphs to see which plastics show up the most.

Celebrate and share

Make sure you celebrate your school’s efforts!!!! Host an event and encourage students to bring along their dilemma bags and share their stories.

Hillarys Primary Colouring Comp Winners

Hillarys-PS_landscape-logoV2

Last week I visited the Year Fours of Amity One Block, Hillarys Primary School, and what a great time we all had.

I was super impressed with the quality of questions the children came up with and we had HUGE fun creating our own froggy character.

There were so many fantastic entries to our colouring-in competition and what a talented bunch of kids they turned out to be!. It was almost impossible to pick a winner –  so we picked 2!

And here they are!

Congratulations Bellamy and Jack – joint winners of the Hillarys Primary colouring comp!

I particularly liked how Bellamy added a soccer ball (how did you know Darcy likes playing soccer?) and Jack’s brilliant addition of a bookshelf and Darcy Moon book – love it!
