The Eco Warrior committee want to kick-start their campaign by creating two fun and visible recycling stations for the playgrounds, food waste bins/set of scales for the lunch hall to initiate a 'who can generate the least food waste' weekly competition between the year groups, and a transparent recycling bin station for the Early Years and Nursery classrooms. The Warriors would also like to get fun transparent recycling bins for the Nursery and indoor classrooms, to help generate awareness. They also want to set up a litter picking rota for the school and the immediate community, so a set of litter pickers would come in handy for this. The children have collected hundreds of coloured bottle tops to make a mosaic for the hopefully soon-to-be-created outdoor recycling stations.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Educating the children in a fun, engaging way on the importance of recycling is the aim. The food waste competition is also a fun, tangible way to get the children to really appreciate quite how much food is unnecessarily wasted, and to in time, get them eating more/wasting less! The indoor transparent recycling bin station for the younger, Early Years and Nursery classroom is a way of getting the younger children to visibly see what they put in each bin and how quickly it mounts up, then thinking how they could re-use the recycling for art projects. If they understand and get behind this from a young age, we are creating the eco warriors of the future!
Steps to get it done:
The Dulwich Wood Eco Warriors are very passionate and enthused about kick-starting this journey to educate, inform and make a difference to their world, and funding would make all this difference in enabling this to happen.
