Back for a second year, Mr. Mac at TM Roberts in Cranbrook is keen to challenge his students to push themselves and commit to making their lifestyles more earth-friendly. This started with the first EcoChallenge of the year, inspired by learning about the history of our waste. Mr. Mac’s class challenged the other Beyond Recycling class at TM Roberts to a litter-less lunch competition.
The other class, under the guidance of Mme. Webster rose to the challenge, and overtook Mr. Mac’s class! Mme. Webster’s class was able to reduce their daily classroom waste down to just 20g, while Mr. Mac’s class used 74g of waste the same day.
But don’t fret! The grade 6’s managed to reduce their daily classroom waste by almost half – still a very notable accomplishment!
