Today, our eco-council were visited by Gush and Montse, Leeds City Council waste and recycling advisors. They gave the children all kinds of useful information about the 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover). The children learned about how the reduction of waste, and the reuse of objects, is even better than recycling, and about what can be recycled, how, and where. Gush and Montse showed us films to explain what happens to an object after we put it in the bin in Leeds, and why it is important we all do the best we can to reduce waste.
The children gained lots of useful insights which they will be feeding back to their classes and which they can feed into our Sustainability Action Plan. A big thank you to Gush and Montse!
