As a Gold Green-Gold Enviro school, we are very proud to announce that we are now recycling disposable face masks! We have 3 bins located in the school, 2 for students and one for staff. 

The face masks will be sent to Future Post at the end of the year. Future Post is a company that already collects soft plastics and turn them into fence posts for farmers, and they now do the same with used face masks

Eco Tip

Homemade basil pesto:
reuse old containers and jars, avoid food waste by freezing, lower your toxic load (no additives or preservatives), grow some basil!

80g basil
80g parmesan
30g pine nuts
¼ tsp salt
130g extra virgin olive oil
Whizz together in a food processor or blender, use within 5 days or freeze in portions until needed.

Re-cycling Tip

Remove soft plastic from your meat/fish trays.

  1. Make sure your plastic tray can be recycled – check for the recycling number on the plastic. Check here for Auckland’s recycled numbers. 
  2. Remove any soft plastic – otherwise it will either go into a low value mixed grade plastic sort, or end up being sorted to landfill.
  3. Give it a a good rinse and you’re done!
