The Cloth Bag Project

Who's Participating: St Joseph School, Blata l-Bajda

Our secondary school decided to hold a healthy eating day in which girls were provided with all sorts of healthy food.  They were given information about healthy diets and ways of life.  They were shown the difference eating healthy or unhealthy food made to their looks, figure and overall well being.

This sheet was collected at the end of the day and totals marked.  This happened day after day for a week. The eco-wardens were in charge of placing the sheet in the morning and collecting it before the...

Minimizing and Recycling Litter

Who's Participating:

Our goal is to raise awareness of how easy it is to minimize misuse of energy, as well as learning how to properly manage waste. This resulted in the collection and recycling of used plastic bottles and their caps, which will be exchanged for money to be donated to a charitable organisation. Based on the seven EkoSkola steps, our committee began with an environmental audit of the school premises. This was followed by a review, where the two main shortcomings were pointed out: litter and energy. In order to address these two issues, an awareness campaign was set up to help fellow students and school...
