SCHOOLS, PLASTICS AND ROOTS & SHOOTS
About 150 children brainstormed ways to reduce their plastics usage, as part of Roots & Shoots’ information sessions at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens for World Environment Day (WED) on Wednesday 5th June 2019.
The information sessions and mind-mapping activities were run by Roots & Shoots members, Polly Gfrerer and Jarryd Tiu, who took time from their busy school schedules to support the environmental program.
Polly and Jarryd talked to six different classes of Reception to Year 7 students about actions they could take to make positive changes in their environment, including reducing environmental impacts of plastic waste.
In total, nearly 2000 students took part in dozens of environmental activities at the Botanic Gardens for WED.
