RESPECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT:
GOING GREEN WITH LITTERLESS LUNCH!
**Make your kids' lunch waste-free**
Litterless lunches at school are the best form of recycling. On average, a school-age child with a disposable lunch generates approximately 30 kg (67 lbs) of waste per school year. That means that if your child has 25 students in his/her class, they are producing 737 kg (1,625 lbs) of waste each year. This is more weight than the average car…. just imagine what a whole school produces!
At Black Mountain we proudly take on the environmental challenge of implementing our own Litterless Lunch Recycling Program. We ask that whatever comes in your child’s lunch bag goes home in their lunch bag, including all food wrappers. In this way, we will create far less garbage at school and you will have a better idea of what your child is finishing for lunch. Our students are excited about highlighting one of our school respect rules, Respecting our Environment, by contributing to a Green School every day.
