Your page has an optional section “For the environment we:”  Here are some ideas.

  • mention Plastic Free Oceans in our newsletter to encourage the community to sign up and prefer businesses that care for the environment.
  • display a HERO poster encouraging people to be HEROES for Plastic Free Oceans.
  • allow Year <number>  students one hour per week/fortnight in school time to volunteer for Plastic Free Oceans.
  • did a fund raiser for Plastic Free Oceans OR other environmental initiatives the school does. 
  • take all reasonable steps to recycle plastic waste.
  • aim to purchase products and produce with the least plastic packaging.
  • provide non-plastic drinking straws or reusable drinking straws in our food outlets.
  • provide non-plastic cutlery and/or plates for take aways.
  • use non plastic fully compostable lids and cups for take aways.
  • use non-plastic, non-polystyrene/Styrofoam take-away containers.
  • do not serve water in plastic bottles.
  • use solar power  OR we purchase only 100% renewable electricity.
  • have LEDs for most of our lighting.
  • have printed cards that visitors can take and consider signing up.
  • compost our canteen scraps.
  • have a school vegetable garden.
  • often add general posts, like I would to Facebook, to my PFO page then click the share buttons to Facebook and/or Twitter so others see my PFO post and I hope they will also become part the solution to the plastics crisis.
