Sustainability Sussed

Lucky year 4 took part in a fantastic workshop from the Eden Project. We researched where our food comes from and learned about the importance of considering ways to reduce packaging in order to protect the environment.

We had five pounds to go shopping for food. We learned that we can make a difference to the environment if we buy fair trade and avoid packaged products. Shockingly, the average U.K. family throw away over £40 of food each month.  Next time you have a packed lunch refill using a water bottle and avoid plastic bags by using a lunch box.  We learned which types of packaging is biodegradable. Did you know that tetra pack is difficult to recycle? Also consider where food comes from – the journey to get to our dinner table can cause pollution.
