Pupils share their eco-wishes for 2012
03 January 2012
Just before Christmas we asked Eco-Schools in England to share with us their eco-wishes for 2012. Schools got back to us with their environmental aspirations for England and the poll revealed that the top five hopes for students were:
For people and organisations to reduce the amount of waste generated; and to stop throwing things in the bin that could be reused, recycled or composted
To get rid of litter from our streets by making sure to always use bins as well as pick up and dispose of any litter seen on the ground
More energy saving – turning off lights and appliances fully when not in use
For people to drive less and choose to walk, cycle or use public transport instead
For more trees to be planted
We received some fantastic responses from schools across the country so a big thanks to all who wrote and shared their eco-wishes with us.
Why not include some of these eco-wishes in your Eco-Code? Or put them in your Eco-Schools Action Plan to tackle over the coming year?
Wishing all Eco-Schools a fantastic 2012 and best of luck with your upcoming projects. We'd love to hear what you're getting up to, so make sure you keep in touch with us via Twitter @EcoSchools and facebook at Eco-Schools England.
Interested in showcasing your Eco-Schools work? Then why not submit a case study that we can share with other schools on our case studies page. Find out more about submitting an Eco-Schools case study.
