We are the Alton Village Public School Eco Team — a brand new elementary school in north Burlington.
Our school is working hard every day to recycle and compost. The Eco Team promotes this by having announcements about what things can go into the Blue Box and GreenCart, reminding students on pizza day to put their paper plates in the GreenCart — not the garbage!
We have just started a campaign to tell people to bring Litterless Lunches to school every day. We are going to make announcements and encourage them to bring Litterless Lunches so their class can win a prize.
We are doing surprise checks once a week to see how classes are doing! We hope that by doing this we will reduce our garbage and waste at school. In the future we’re hoping to get everybody doing it so we can reduce our waste and have smaller garbage cans! We want to be an awesome Ontario EcoSchool!
