An awareness campaign to teach students, parents and teachers about Hazardous Waste Prevention. Examples of alternative natural products instead of chemicals, were promoted. Students reached parents to raise awareness in their homes and then to reach the outer community by also implementing actions at school and outside the school. Throughout the EWWR week we decided to go ‘HAZARDOUS FREE’. We made household cleaning products by using safe and degradable ingredients and used them together at school to show to all students and teachers that there is always a safer way for this. We also went to an old peoples home, talk about hazardous waste, distributed leaflets and explained why we are using our products. This activity is being done to show that hazardous waste is very harmful for our environment and for our health, and how we can avoid it by using safe products as it is very essential

Over the past few months, I have been helping a group of people with special needs by doing activities, every Friday evening. Our meeting place is provided by the parish chaplain. Amongst the many activities, I have decided to grow local oak trees, by re-using ice-cream cups, therefore teaching the people with special needs, the importance of trees, and how to re-use our waste food containers, rather than throwing them for recycling.

At Tarxien Middle School the Minions went green thanks to Ms.Carmen Bonnici LSE supported by students. Old car tyres were reused as a decorative planter in our school and this embellished greatly our school environment. I suggest that other schools or other organisations follow suit even by using other recyclable materials.
