Introducing Wrapper Free Wednesdays, a dedicated day of the school week where EcoMarine ambassadors across the school encourage their fellow eco-conscious comrades to eliminate plastic from their packed lunches. We hope this initiative will help you re-consider how your lunches are packed in an effort to raise awareness on the amount of plastic consumption in our everyday lives, and the impact it has on our local marine and wildlife.
Over 7 million tonnes of rubbish ends up in the world’s oceans each year, 80% of which is plastic! Thankfully, students of Banksia Beach State School are taking matters into their own hands, and have provided some simple tips to help make our school a more eco-friendly environment.
Banksia Beach Students’ Wrapper Free Tips:
- Pack snacks in reusable containers
- Drink water from a reusable bottle
- Make sure you have a reusable spoon or fork with your lunch
- Package it all up nicely in a reusable lunchbox!
