At Edgeworth Public School we are committed to a sustainable way of living.
Every Wednesday is Waste Free lunch day at school. This is to promote a change in attitudes to waste and waste management by encouraging our students to take the first step in the waste hierarchy – avoiding.
All lunches and recess are provided in reusable containers, so that there is no packaging to place into the bin and the majority of the waste produced is organic (i.e. food scraps) which can be recycled via our school compost bin.
It not only makes good environmental sense but it makes good economic sense too. Waste free lunches are often cheaper and in most cases a lot healthier too!
