Eco Club at Taylor Creek
We have a strong and thriving Eco Club at Taylor Creek. Whether we are working in our community garden, planting trees, cleaning the school yard and surrounding areas, or monitoring our electricity and heating use, we are thinking about how to be greener at Taylor Creek.
As a platinum certified eco-school, we are committed to not only reducing our carbon footprint, but also to raising awareness of waste in society. This year, we are continuing with our ‘boomerang’ lunch. Any waste products which are produced by your child’s lunch are to go home with your child in your lunch bag. We are hoping to see more Tupperware and thermoses, and fewer single serving food items, from which the wraps and plastic end up in landfills. We have found that when children are responsible for bringing home this waste, they become more thoughtful about how to prepare their lunches.
