My students have collected data around how much waste we sent to landfill.
We collected the weight and recorded this on a spreadsheet daily at the end of each day. After each term we set ourselves challenges to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill each day.
Parents became involved as we encouraged them to purchase food in bulk and to use containers instead of single serve/use plastics.
We were successful in reducing our footprint and the parents learnt new information about buying in bulk to help them save money.
