Recycling Plastics

On Friday afternoon October 27th and following our weekly visit to the School Library Jeannine spoke to the children on why it is important for everyone in our community to help reduce the use of  plastic bags and plastic containers that we all use in our daily lives.

Jeannine showed us many different varieties of plastic that are causing harm to our environment especially plastic supermarket bags which are clogging up the landfills and harming wild-life in our oceans.

Jeannine then asked questions on how we could reduce using plastic in our homes and school.
Here are some of our responses

·       recycling plastic bags
·       purchasing bags that are biodegradable
·       putting our used plastic items in rubbish bags securely so they are not blown away
·       looking for the re-usable plastic signs when we visit supermarkets,cafes and restaurants
·       encouraging the use of other materials to use such as cardboard containers to store items in
