The future looks bright with Mullumbimby High School Green Group’s dedication to waste reduction through recycling and waste management education. The group of grade 8-10 students share a passion for the environment and waste innovation, applying problem solving, management, and leadership skills to a complex real-world issue.
The Green Group students have set ambitious goals to eradicate non-recyclable and non-compostable packaging from the canteen, establish separate waste bins for recycling, green waste, paper and cardboard, and set up a compost system at the school’s agriculture farm. The students were recently awarded the NSW Government Sustainable Schools Grant to help them achieve their goals. Well done students!
