Book Recycling Appeal

The Problem

After conducting a recycling&environmental audit of our school we identified big issues with the use of exercise books in our paper-dependent school. We found that our school provided students with a huge excess of exercise books at the start of every year, and that students overwhelmingly didn't know that they could recycle used exercise books and threw them out at the end of each year.

The Solution

We ran a book recycling drive at the end of the year, and rounded up huge bins full of used exercise books which students said would have been thrown into waste or hoarded otherwise. We also collected blank exercise books which were sent to our sister school in Papua New Guinea. We spruiked it at assemblies as a competition between year levels and weighed how much each year collected.
