Sustainability & looking after our environment

So, I decided to make my lessons on looking after our environment, from picking-up litter to reducing energy usage, much more widely available.  The situation is becoming more urgent with carbon dioxide levels reaching record levels in our atmosphere and the excellent documentary “Trashed” (headed-up by Jeremy Irons).  The initial goal – to ban non-recyclable plastic waste across the EU, especially those bags.  65% of plastic we throw away is land-filled or burned.

I’ve trialed these resources and they seemed to receive a good reception, but (of course) it’s just a beginning.  At the end of the day, it’s not what we know, but what we actually do based on the information we’ve received and the hand we’ve been dealt.
