Rubbish - YOU are the difference!
North East Waste & Resource Recover Group
This unit has been designed to make students more aware of the recycling practices offered within their own local community and what happens to the materials they do recycle. The unit is designed to help them:
• understand why we have these practices by examining what used to happen in the past
• develop an appreciation for how they sort their own rubbish and what happens to it
• think about where their waste will go in the future
Waste Unit 2 - Going Nude!
This unit is about encouraging students to examine the amount of waste in what they consume at school. It introduces the concept of ‘nude food’ (food that comes to school without disposable packaging – extra plastic bags, paper bags, wrappings, plastic water bottles or cling wraps) and the choices that are available to them to reduce waste. As Australia is the second highest producer of waste per person in the western world and school lunches add enormously to this, (around 30kg per child per year of litter) this unit looks at alternatives and encourages positive plans of action.
