Each year, families of primary school aged children in the state spend more than $3.5 million on individually packaged items, collectively throwing away over 1.5 million yogurt suckers, 3 million small tubs and 11 million ziplock bags - that’s enough ziplock bags laid flat to reach from Brisbane to Townsville!
At Star of the Sea we want to cut down on the waste!
We are also having a competition! Your submission could be anything like a media project, drawing, sculpture or any creative! Something that encourages a WOW lunchbox and care for our environment. Due Week 10 with lots of prizes! Simply create an Artwork that is all about caring for the environment (or having a WOW lunchbox) and hand to your class teacher or the office in Week 10.
