Have you thought about setting up a full recycling system - for paper as well as containers?
Have you noticed the amount of food waste thrown out that could have been composted instead?
Theses manuals present simple step-by-step ideas for successfully starting and maintaining recycling and composting systems in your school. Local information and resources are provided to make the manuals as directly applicable as possible.

Looking for a sustainable way to manage traffic around your school? School Travel Planning is a project that will address concerns about students’ journeys to and from school. The ultimate goal of a School Travel Plan is to create an environment that encourages more people to walk, cycle or use active transportation to and from school, and to improve the journey for those who use cars or take school busses. Visit the School Travel Planning website.
By encouraging parents to turn off their vehicles in front of your school, you and your students won't have to breathe in unhealthy exhaust fumes and you'll help to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. See the programs that are currently available and learn how your school can become idle-free.
