Save The Planet!

I have been really thinking about the environment lately. I have decided to be Wrapper Free on Wednesdays. I talked to Veolia and they gave me lots of information.

Veolia told us that you can’t recyle cans unless they are NOT crushed and that you can NOT recycle glass bottles/jars.

Every plastic bottle (like pop-a-tops) start from the same plastic tube. A robot streches the tube to make different shapes and sizes.

I found it very interesting.

Have you ever tried to be wrapper free?

Was it Successful?

G’day Maddie,
I like your idea of saving the plannet a lot.
I have also been wrapper free Wednesday along with you as it is part of our class unit. Me being wrapper free was actually successful but for the whole class it was a bit difficult to remember. It was wonderful how we reduced our rubbish by 65 pieces!!!!!
EVERYONE TRY WRAPPER FREE WEDNESDAY!
From Annabel. :D

    Hi Annabel,
    Yes, over half the class forgot Wrapper Free Wednesday. It ruined it a bit. It was alwaysb the same people that forgot to. I was successful each week.
    Don’t forget Nood Food Day.

I have also been wrapper free Wednesday along with you as it is part of our class unit. At the start of wraapper free our class had 95 pices a rubbish a day. Then we reduced it down to 25 then nearly 0. Its quiet easy to be wrapper free i could do it so you could too.
Keep saving the planet, Caitlin
