We are currently collecting bread tags, bottle tops and old mobile phones at school. This not only saves these items from landfill, but helps others less fortunate than us.
Thank you to everyone for all of your bread tags so far - we have collected just over a kilogram of tags that will be delivered to Urban Upcycle, where they will be passed on and help contribute to the purchase of wheelchairs in South Africa. Please continue to bring them in and place them in your classroom collection box.
We are also collecting bottle top lids. These lids are being turned into 3D plastic, which is then used to make prosthetic limbs for third world countries. Please place any lids you have in the box outside the office. There is also a box for any old mobile phones you no longer need or use.
