Schools Eco Ideas Swap Event – 3rd March 2020
On Tuesday 3rd of March 2020, we hosted our 2nd annual Greener & Cleaner Bromley (& Beyond) Schools Eco Ideas Swap Event!
40+ schools, mostly from Bromley borough, but also Greenwich, Lewisham, Bexley & Croydon boroughs, sent delegates to share the changes they’ve been making to reduce their schools’ environmental impact and in turn improve student wellbeing. And then experts presented on those areas too.
From green energy tariffs, to food waste recycling, to tree planting, biodiversity improvement and better air quality, lots going on and lots planned, LETS ALL SUPPORT OUR LOCAL SCHOOLS with these things & much more
The 3 main takeaways to focus on were:
- switching to green energy (more than halving carbon emission & saving costs) – https://drive.google.com/open…
- running an anti-idling campaign – feel free to use our Greener and Cleaner anti-idling leaflet – https://drive.google.com/open…
