Zero Waste Week

This term we celebrated our first ever Zero Waste Week. We kicked off the week by encouraging all forms to write an eco-friendly pledge ranging from avoiding fast fashion to reducing our food waste. Pupils from all year groups got involved with fun activities such as using a refillable shampoo station which had all finished by the end of the week! It was lovely to see so many people take part in the Fashion Fixit event and the Repair Cafe. The Sixth Form wrote letters to MPs and large companies about what they could do to reduce the onus on the individual to reduce their waste. They also enjoyed a discussion following Prof Kate Raworth’s lecture on Doughnut Economics. Hopefully, we can continue this event in the future and encourage individuals to reduce their waste.
