The exciting learnings, coming & goings of Year 2

BAN PLASTIC BAGS


Last term after learning about what happens to plastic in our waterways and helping out with Beach Patrol, Abi (2F) felt really sad and worried about our environment and decided to write to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, the Hon Lily D’Ambrosio MP.

Abi wrote to the minister with some ideas for minimizing plastic waste such as banning plastic shopping bags and educating people about using recyclable coffee cups and drink bottles.

This week the Minister replied to Abi thanking her for her ideas and correspondence and mentioned that they are looking at banning plastic shopping bags.

Well done Abi on thinking like a global citizen and trying to solve a problem that impacts on humans and our environment!

You are a true Waste Warrior!
