Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting rid of the masks any time soon. What has this got to do with litter? The use of disposable masks has escalated since the appearance of Covid 19. Most of the 8 billion global population are wearing masks. Thinking about the problems created by the dumping of these disposable masks can be saddening to say the least. But there is an alternative. The least we can do is to wear safe, reusable masks and at the same time we would be taking care of the environment! Less trash means a safer environment for us all! Make the swap and save the planet!

To help reduce plastic further, throughout this year we are also campaigning to grow our own food at school and encouraging parents of our students to do the same. In this way we will be controlling plastic waste even more by avoiding buying prepacked fruit and vegetables. We would like to encourage our school community to look at the foods we buy to find ways of reducing our plastic use. One way of cutting down on our household plastic waste is surely by growing our own crops. Every class shall be having a planter or garden patch where they shall be growing their own fruits and vegetables. Parents at home are also being encouraged to grow food in their balconies, roofs and yards.
