Green Christmas

Hi everyone,

During this wonderful season of giving, let’s give our Mother Earth a gift 🎁 of becoming more sustainable. These are some tips that you could use to make your Christmas a little greener ❤️:

🌍 Choose the most eco-friendly Christmas tree option for you.🌲

🌏Don’t forget to compost your Christmas tree after use. 🎄

🌏 Make your own decorations 💡( reuse old newspaper, cardboard, plastic bottle etc. — go wild with it)

🌏 Don’t leave the lights on, on your tree 🌲 during night time, try to reduce our energy consumption. 😇

🌏 Buy eco-friendly gifts for your friends and family🎁 (reusable water bottle, reusable coffee cup ☕️ etc.)

🌏 Be considerate of paper 📝 ( recycle ♻️ gift wrappers, recycle old cards etc.)

🌍 Buy locally grown food (reduce the amount of plastic packages on the vegetables and minimise your food waste by not buying excessive amounts 👍)

🌍If you have any unwanted presents, don’t bin them, donate them to your local charity shop instead. It could help a lot of people. ❤

🌍 Make your own gifts 🎁 from recycled material ( everyone appreciates a kind handmade gift)

Now last but never the least:
🌍 Have a Beautiful Christmas

Merry Green Christmas ❤️,
The Environment Committee

Green Halloween

Hey everyone,
Here are the top tips to make your spooky halloween a greener one. ☠️♻️
  1. Decorations. Instead of buying materials, make your own!!!! 🤔 For example:

    Turn cardboard boxes into tombstones ☠️

  2. Costumes: Get creative!!! Make your own…  👩🚀🧝‍♂️👨🎤🧛‍♂️

    Keep old clothes that can be used as good pieces or parts of costumes, like worn t-shirts, black pants/shorts, etc. 👻

  3. Parties. When having a party, cut down on waste by avoiding disposable cups, plates and cutlery. 👎

    Use regular dishes or buy biodegradable ones. 👍

  4. Treats. Buy locally produced foods, candies and treats. Look for goodies with minimal packaging 🍭.

    Check labels to see that the sweets are fair trade 🍬( be the cool kid on the street 😎)

  5. Trick-or-Treat Bags. Use (and decorate) household items to collect candy in. A bucket, pillowcase, or old even an old bag can be decorated inexpensively at home – and reused year after year 🛍.
  6. Pumpkins. Buy pumpkins from local farms or farmers’ markets.  🎃
  7. Jack-o-lanterns. Don’t throw away all the goodies from inside your pumpkin. 😫 Toast the seeds for tasty treats. Make pumpkin pie or muffins with the fruit – or compost it… 🎃
  8. Transportation. Trick or Treat by walking around your neighborhood instead of driving to another destination. 🚗 😱… 🚶‍♀️😆

    Get to know your neighbors, reduce your carbon emissions and help keep the streets safe for other walkers. 💚

  9. Compost and Recycle. From party food to treats to pumpkins, consider composting all organic matter and recycling other items. ♻️
  10. Reuse! Reuse as much as you can from year to year. Instead of throwing away an old box or bag, use it to gather all your decorations and keep for next year. 😻
And we would also like to wish you the best of luck for your exams.  💚
Have a great Halloween👻,
The Environment Committee 🌱

Simple Steps To Remove Single-Use Plastic:

1) Switch to Tetra Pak milk instead of plastic containers as they are easily recycled and mainly single use plastic free.

2) Invest in a Keep cup for a guilt-free caffeine fix.

3) Use a refillable water bottle to reduce waste.

4) Say no to cling film & tinfoil – use a lunchbox instead.
