Orlagh St. Pius X College Eco School Renewal Presentation Thursday 20th June 2013
Gary Jamie What is Eco-schools?
Eco-schools is a program that helps to educate children in schools about how they can help their school and benefit the environment. We enjoy taking part in Eco-schools as we are given the opportunity to: Participate in various projects on waste, recycling, litter,
energy and biodiversity. Talk to our friends in assemblies. Update the college website/send photos to local papers. What does our Eco-team do?
Jamie Our Eco-team: Empties the blue bins in the class rooms during PSHE.
We do litter picks around the school. We collect and recycle old ink cartridges, mobile phones and textiles. We help environmental charities, such as Camara to send computers to Africa.

Reprographics Recycling paper blue bins Laura
Recycling costs less - up to 80% of normal waste disposal costs. Recycling one tonne of paper saves 17 trees. In one tonne there is 1000 kilograms = 1176 litres. That means for every 69 litres of paper recycled - one tree is saved. Every week the Eco-team empties 54 blue bins.
Each bin contains 50 litres. (54 bins x 50 litres = 2700 litres). This means 39 trees are saved every week. (2700 litres / 69 litres = 39 trees saved) Recyco Waste Black bins
