This week Sarah Langi from Small Planet came to talk with us about recycling. Sarah talked about what happens to the rubbish in land fill and how it just sits there and takes hundreds of years to break down. If we want to be people who care for our environment we need to think of some other ways of disposing of rubbish was her main message.
We had collected lots of rubbish from lunches, a collection of food scraps and other things and Sarah asked the children to decide where to put each item. The children had to decide whether it was paper and card, plastic, tin or compost or worm farm. We were very proud of the way they answered quickly and with such knowledgeable answers.
And I learnt a new thing this week......did you know that Kathmandu fleeces are made from recycled plastic bottles so drink up!
