Today at our School we started a trial of bringing our lunches without wrappers or anything that has to be thrown away.
So how does this work?
On Wednesday, week 8, 9 & 10 of this term, all lunchbox’s will be free of all wrappers, glad wrap, snap lock bags and paper wrappers.
Each Wednesday morning the class councillor or teacher checks all the lunch boxes of the students.
If the lunchbox is completely empty then you get your name on a list and at the end when everyone's lunch box has been checked then you add up how many people had no wrappers in their lunchbox and you get 2 house points per person eg. If you have 30 students then that's 60 house points.
(Teachers are also expected to contribute to the cause as well so you can blame your teacher if you don't get lots of house points)
By the way some teachers take it seriously like ours and he brought a wrapper free lunch so you can't blame him !
Is your school doing anything like this? We would be interested to hear your thoughts on this subject.
