This year, there has been a noticed decline in students’ engagement in environmental conservation activities. Consequently, a student decided to conduct a random survey among students to assess their awareness of environmental issues and their impact on daily life. The survey was specifically targeted at the current student population and was carried out throughout the month of March with the aim to determine the reasons behind the lack of interest in actively participating in eco-friendly initiatives.

We noticed that activities produce a lot of envelopes, so we decided to introduce reusable plastic envelopes to reduce waste. We carried out several fund-raising activities including a wrap and hot chocolate day. As an EkoSkola team, we tried to choose reusable envelopes that are sustainable. We plan to work with teachers to include the importance of the project in lessons, and possibly to obtain and pass feedback. We plan to use these reusable envelopes next year for Forms 1 and 2, to observe and adjust before doing the project for the whole school. We estimate that our school will save around 13.3kg of paper annually.
