Reduce the plastic bottle glut: Start encouraging the use of reusable, personal water containers. It is said that the quantity of plastic water bottles used each year could circle the earth three times. Plastic is an oil byproduct and this can help in a great way.
Replace Styrofoam with mugs and cups: Styrofoam is one of the products that is almost impossible to recycle. It is costly and requires specific types of recycle centers, of which there are only a few. Get rid of those horrible Styrofoam cups and containers and use ceramic.
Use material eco bags instead of plastic bags: Plastic bags are all around us and although easier to use, they contribute to the CO2 emissions. Using eco bags will help your school have a green footprint and can be really useful if they have the school name and logo.
Paper waste: Schools, like businesses are notorious for the use of a lot of paper. Make sure you recycle the paper so that it can be used again when needed. Another way to use less paper is to encourage online use as opposed to printing everything. As we replace standard phones with smartphones, kids will be able to download using mobile apps.
