Malala introducing the The Worlds Largest Lesson

We need your help!


The School Council has been discussing how to reduce the amount of disposable plastic in our lunchboxes.  We have come up with a few simple ideas:


Use reusable tubs and plastic boxes instead of single use plastic bags.


Wrap sandwiches in grease proof paper or wax paper instead of using cling film or single use plastic bags.


Buy a sharing pack of crisps instead of a multipack and each day place a portion in a reusable container. It may even work out cheaper!


Instead of buying bottled water, but a refillable bottle or flask, this will last longer.


Reduce, reuse and recyle!


Maybe you can try one (or more) of these ideas to help reduce the amount of disposable plastic in your lunchbox.

Mr Booker says;

'Help your parents take out the bins and watch what goes in to your black and blue bins - we looked at what makes up the biggest amount of things we throw away and thought about what happens to the rubbish and recycling and what we could do to reduce this.'

'Ours bins were mainly filed with plastic film and plastic trays from food shopping. We're avoiding buying fruit and veg in individual plastic wrappers and now take reusable bags to the shops and thinking what goes in our bins.' 


Mrs Reynolds says;

'Fantastic initiative Halifax School!  I am about to stop buying milk in plastic bottles and have it delivered by a milk person in reusable glass ones instead.'


Miss Gooch says;

'I make flapjacks and cakes to save on packaging from bought snacks. I am also having a go at making my own beeswax wraps from a video on YouTube.'


Daniel in Year 4 says;

'My mum has bought beeswax wraps for my sandwiches instead of clingfilm or tin foil. You can wash them and reuse them.
