Team Name: The Bin Savers of Hawkesbury School

Anti-Litter Action Plan: We are planning a school competition to revolutionise our boring bins. The tasteless,depressing bins look like they’ve been there since 1988. We want to remake them so they are fun and also interest younger children in the environmental issues facing our world in this day and age. We are a small child-led group of 10 who weekly award one class the most eco-friendly class of the week, based on a lunchtime class inspection
around the whole school grounds.

How will they implement their idea? : We meet once a week and we try to discuss how to save
animals by picking up our litter. We want to make our school bins less boring and make them more appealing for children young and old to use.

What The Judges said: What a well delivered presentation! An engaging, enthusiastic, entertaining and mature voice comes through in the PowerPoint. Great that the team are engaging the rest of the school, using the power of fun competitions to make a change. It’s a good idea to use the actual bins to inform and promote interest in environmental issues. Well done for considering the different age groups in school, and what might appeal to them. This entry could be even better with some specific designs/ideas for what you would do to the bins to create the effect you want, for example how you would present the information or in what way you would redesign the bins. This would help people to imagine it becoming a reality!
