LET’S STOP LIVING W-A-S-T-E-F-U-L-L-Y
AND START LIVING RESOURCEFULLY
A Workshop for teachers and school administrators on simple, feasible solutions for waste management in schools
Schools play an important role in keeping our environment clean. One important step in this process is educating students and the wider community about reducing the amount of resources consumed, so that we do not needlessly throw used material into garbage bins. For this “waste” ultimately lands up in street corners, lakes, forests, outskirts of the city and in village grazing pastures and farmlands causing massive pollution and creating major public health hazards. While each of us can do a lot in making schools less wasteful, better results are achieved when the whole school makes a commitment to minimizing resource consumption, improve “waste” management and recover and reuse material – be it in composting organic waste to make it into rich manure, or in turning “waste” material into fantastic daily use craft stuff.
