20 Australian Eco-Schools have received seed grants of $500 to kick-start a litter management project in their school. The 2017 Litter Legends grants have been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Wrigley Company Foundation as part of the International Litter Less Campaign.
Well done to Burnie Primary School, Tasmania who have just been awarded their first Bronze Award. Choosing the litter and waste theme, the students reviewed the school’s waste management and found that there were no recycling facilities, with nearly 100kg of rubbish heading to landfill every school week.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) competition winners. The YRE International Jury met in Denmark last month to decide who would take the top prizes in the field of photo, video and written journalism.
