One of the biggest problems facing the world at present is the garbage crisis and the use of throw away plastic items without as much as a thought for the environment. Recycling and reducing waste is not something that is a priority for most people with a large majority of those people being completely oblivious and unaware of the problems that the world is facing with the over use of plastic and other non-biodegradable material. As a parent, it is important for you to teach your children, the future generation of the world the importance of rubbish removal in Central Coast and reducing their use of plastic but is teaching only your children enough?
Plan out a programme
Although this is a very real problem facing the world, the sad fact is that most schools rarely ever talk about the impact of plastic usage on the environment and therefore it is up to you the parent to take the initiative to educate these children. Get your children and their friends involved in planning out a programme where you can educate the children of the school and get them actively involved in a reduce, recycle and reuse policy. You can have the government get involved with your programme and provide the school with a number of skip bins where they can separate their waste knowingly.
Track your waste
It would be useful to have the children track the amount of things they throw away every day at the school and at home. This will help them become more aware of the amount of plastic they use every day and dump in to their skip bins Lake Macquarie.
Every time we visit the supermarket, we use at least seven new plastic bags for every shop but we are quite unaware and oblivious to that fact. If we however actively make it a point of counting the amount of bags we use and the amount of bags we throw away, it will help us to become more aware and reduce our usage and this is the same principles that you need to implement in schools. It would be useful to have an environmental committee that is committed to seeing that every class and every pupil adheres to these rules and this will also work to increase the amount of awareness created in their own homes. Each child will be guaranteed to go home and speak to their parents about the work that they do in school and speak to their parents about the impact of plastic on the environment.
