Team Green at the Waste Free Fair during Plastic Free July

On Saturday 18th of July, Team Green members Hazel, Chloe, Lucia and her sister Cora, Lena, Lulu and I went to the Waste Free Fair at the Wanaka Center and hosted a stall. 

EarringsAt the Fair you can buy zero -waste products and learn a lot about living a waste free life. 

We sold homemade cards and feather earrings made out of recycled inner bike tubes.
Lucia sold beeswax wraps and hand sewn bags.
Hazel was also holding a stall and was selling bath bombs and cards.
Lena helped out around our three different stalls.
Our stalls were a great success! 

There were many stands and people, and we had a great time visiting all the different eco-friendly stalls.

There was chopping boards and cutlery made from wood, jewelry, hand sewn gloves and hats, soap, food, and so much more.

The surprising profit we all earned is being donated to a variation of helpful organisations such as WWF, Te Kakano and Dunedin Wildlife Hospital.

We nearly sold everything, and we even got an order to make a pair of earrings!!

End of Year “do” in the Park

Enjoying cake and fair trade chocolate in the tall grass in Lismore Park, we discussed what went well this year and what we want to do next year. We are quite proud of our achievements this year:

  • three worms farms,
  • a fun scavenger hunt,
  • a school wide tree planting event…

Next year, we plan to:

  • repeat our recycle-well campaign
  • organise food waste management better
  • work on energy savings, divest our school from coal, more solar panels (needs lots of money for that!)
  • So fundraising will continue with fair trade bake sales and plant sales -as above!
  • We are chuffed to be invited by the architects to contribute to the new buildings concepts

It would be great if senior students would join us, we could then have several projects going.
