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:

  • fun, engaging outdoor playground recycling stations
  • fun, engaging indoor classroom recycling bins for Nursery and Primary
  • lunchtime 'less food waste' competition set-up
  • litter picking rota and local community awareness of this

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:

  • Buying & installing the outdoor recycling stations
  • Buying the transparent classroom recycling stations for Early Years and Nursery rooms
  • Setting up the 'food waste' station in the lunch hall, appointing weighing monitors and setting up a competition chart
  • Buying litter picking sets and setting up a litter picking rota
  • Children designing and making a bottle top mosaic for the outdoor recycling stations
  • Organising an Eco Afternoon to celebrate and generate awareness

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.
