Introducing environmentally friendly water dispensers
We are committed to playing our part in reducing our carbon footprint and creating good environmentally-friendly practices in our school community.
We have recently installed new fresh water dispensers across all our schools and we are stopping our use of bottled water, which will save approximately 25,000 bottles a year – this is one tonne of plastic and will save 1.5 tonnes of carbon.
Did you know?
- Every plastic bottle recycled conserves enough energy to light a 60 watt lightbulb for six hours.
- Recycling 25,000 plastic bottles could make 1,000 adult fleece jackets.
- And, a pair of jeans includes an average eight recycled plastic bottles, so our saving equals 3,125 jeans.
Please bring re-usable water bottles to school to use.
