Damascus College Green Group
The whole school is getting involved in a range of Enviroweek actions.
We have new cool waste bins for both paper and general waste and we have distributed these around the school to each classroom. Not only that, but we have a weekly roster to empty them into wheelie bins so that the whole school participates. Students and their families invited to send their old mobiles in for recycling during Enviroweek. We also have green waste bins for our gardens.
Staff will bring to and buy from a gardeners' table at the College's annual "Damascus Day" Festival on Wednesday.
Switching off classroom heating / cooling system for one hour saves 353 CO2e kgs in a year from being released into the atmosphere.
WE ARE CELEBRATING ENVIROWEEK
We plan on having a green themed dress up week and creating a video to promote waste reduction. We were also doing a clothes swap at a market-like event and a DIY your own creation using second hand items and materials
