In 2022, Eco-Schools Australia is running the Less Litter, More Recycling Campaign, funded by the Department of the Environment and Energy.
A limited number of eligible Australian Eco-Schools will receive seed grants of $300 each to implement a project to reduce litter and/or improve recycling in their school and community.
Participating schools will follow the Eco-Schools seven steps and conduct two litter/waste/recycling audits to help them monitor their progress. The first audit is carried out at the beginning of their project and the second one at the end.
The campaign targets the behaviour, knowledge and opinion leadership of students. We also hope to see a 10% decrease in the amount of litter/waste production or a 10% increase in the amount of waste diverted to recycling.
