Reduce, Recycle, Reduce

Discussing green issues

Green Up Your Act visited us this week to deliver a Green Shoots workshop – focusing on how we can reduce emissions from the transport of our food. We talked briefly about how our food is transported and where it comes from, and compared British products to ones found globally. Should we always buy British? How green are we if we buy food from Argentina? Both questions without easy answers, but it got the children thinking about how they buy food.

We then looked at what we can do at home, and went on to make biodegradable seed pots made from paper. Really easy to make, and something that your children can do at home, too!

Thank you to the Friends of Lyndhurst for making this possible.
