Did you know that...Our Earth loses 18.7 million acres of forest every year, which is equal to 27 soccer fields every minute? And that only 9% of the 9 billion tonnes of plastic the world has ever produced has been recycled?
This November through our Foundation, The Alice Smith School is embarking on a journey of environmental stewardship. Working alongside the community and eco-partners, sustainability initiatives are our focus this November Giving month.
Help us to begin this important journey on Saturday, 2nd November at our Eco-Community Day. We would love to have you, your family and friends join us for this special event at our Secondary Campus, Equine Park between 9am and 12pm. There will be plenty to do including talks, exhibitions, workshops, fun family activities, family yoga - and even a green party! #Jointhemovement
Our talks and workshops will help you understand more about the impact of waste and how to make a sustainable change with information on fabric recycling, re-purposing household items and making your own compost. Register for the day here and follow our twitter feed for the latest updates @KLASS_Eco.
