Ways to make a difference 2

5. Use metal, wooden or reusable straws instead of single use plastic because about 8.3 billion plastic straws are currently in our oceans! 6. Create a compost pile. Composting means recycling nutrients back into the ecosystem, which keeps food out of landfills and waterways and makes soil better for planting.

Ways to make a difference

1. Did you know transport is the single biggest source of emission in the UK? So use your bike or scooter, or walk! 2. Eat more plant-based food, such as fruits and vegetables and reduce the amount of red meat you eat because cows are a really big culprit of greenhouse gasses, and the crops they eat take up loads of land and water. 3. Try reduce food waste by buying only what you will eat and using it up before its use by date. 4. Carry reusable water bottles. Nowadays many cafes, shops and high streets have refilling points that you can use for water bottle

How to Reuse reduce and recycle plastic

Hornsey School for Girls

1. If you do painting, reuse a bit of plastic to put the paint on (like a palette!) . Cut a large piece of plastic from a bottle, fruit container etc... and you're done! To keep the paint fresh if you are leaving it for a long time, cover the paint with non-PVC cling film. This reduces paint waste.(We recommend non-PVC because it is safe. Also try to get biodegradable cling film!) 2. Go to your local refill shop where you can take plastic bottles and get them filled with shampoo, washing up liquid. Reduce plastic waste. 3. Take it to a local primary school and let them be creative.

Drastic Plastic - What can you do to help

Hornsey School for Girls

There are many things you can do at home to help including: - Use shampoo bars (I recommend the LUSH ones!) and soap bars. This way, you are not using plastic shampoo and soap bottles. - Reuse or recycle all the single-use plastic you buy, e.g. You could use it to make art or take it to a recycling centre. *Better still, don't buy it in the first place!* - Get a fabric shopping bag and a reusable plastic or metal water bottle. - Try to avoid buying products with plastic packaging. - Use reusable wooden or metal straws instead of plastic ones because they are PLASTIC!

The Terrors of the Fashion Industry: Mindless Marketing

Plastic pollution is a big problem in our world. At least 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year! Which is similar to dropping a skip full of plastic waste into the ocean every minute! :( -91% of plastic is not recycled! Plastic pollution affects at least 700 different marine species, while some estimates suggest that at least 100 million marine mammals are killed each year from plastic pollution. There is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way. This was mind-blowing because there are about 400 billion stars milky way
