Sustainability Update

sustainability.jpgFor our school sustainability program this term we are aiming to collect many items that would normally be sent to landfill. These items will be made into other items for people in Australia and poorer countries around the world. Our aim is to make the environment a cleaner place while helping the community. The items we are collecting to recycle for a better purpose are: 
  • Toothpaste tubes, floss containers and old plastic toothbrushes
  • Electric toothbrush heads
  • Medical ointment tubes
  • Hair gel tubes and caps
  • Hair paste plastic jars and lip balm tubes
  • Face soap dispensers and tubes
  • Lotion bottles, tubes, dispensers, and jars
  • Shaving foam tubes (no cans)
  • Plastic razors and blades
  • Lip gloss tubes
  • Mascara tubes
  • Eye liner pencils and cases
  • Eyeshadow tubes
  • Concealer tubes and sticks
  • Medical blister pack
  • Spray or pump from cleaning products
  • Coffee pods
  • Party supplies and dining disposables (single-use cutlery and straws)
  • Prescription drug packaging (blister packs)
  • Plastic bread tags 

If you could collect these items at home and bring them into school, there will be a tub at the Front Office for you to drop off your collected items. 

We would appreciate your help and assistance. We hope together we can make a difference in the community and maybe even further.

 Thank you.
