A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases you generate in your daily actions. The Nature Conservancy state that “to have the best chance of avoiding a 2℃ rise in global temperatures, the average global carbon footprint per year needs to drop to under 2 tons by 2050”. Simple daily actions increase your carbon footprint, such as, using cars, cooling systems, consumption of meat, etc. Changing your habits will help save our glaciers.

We noticed that activities produce a lot of envelopes, so we decided to introduce reusable plastic envelopes to reduce waste. We carried out several fund-raising activities including a wrap and hot chocolate day. As an EkoSkola team, we tried to choose reusable envelopes that are sustainable. We plan to work with teachers to include the importance of the project in lessons, and possibly to obtain and pass feedback. We plan to use these reusable envelopes next year for Forms 1 and 2, to observe and adjust before doing the project for the whole school. We estimate that our school will save around 13.3kg of paper annually.
