RUBBISH FREE TROPHY
We had 42 entries for the Rubbish Free Trophy and so many wonderful ideas.
So this is the meaning of the Trophy:
There are many sections to the trophy that mean different things.
We sent our milk bottles to AusPlaztik and the legs, the arms and the neck are made out of recycled milk bottles. This helps us to remember to recycle as much of our waste as we can. The nesting box was made by the 2009 Enviro Team showing that we must keep all of our waste out of animals’ homes or habitats.
The eyes are water drops donated by Mallee Catchment to help us remember to keep all the waste out of our waterways such as the Murray Rive. The eyes also remind us to keep the sinks clear of waste in our school ground. The red bucket [donated by Bunnings] shows us that we only put things like tissues and pencil shavings in this bin as we are trying to reduce our rubbish to the landfill.
The fly swats on the arms show we have to keep all of our waste disposed of properly so we don’t attract any flies.The mouth is a sandwich container that we were given at the ResourceSmart ceremony in Melbourne last year. This reminds us if we use an airtight container we do not have to use any soft plastic such as Gladwrap. The shoes show us we can all use reusable containers.
We have some extra features: a hat to show we are a SunSmart school and the gold and brown paint to show our Mildura West colours.
The trophy shows great depth of thought. Well done!
