In the Primary School, the Eco Rangers group led the way, focusing on several key areas and ways to waste less: water, plastic, electricity, fuel, paper and food. Here's the link to the introductory video they made:
Throughout the week, students were encouraged to make photo pledges, stating what they were going to waste less. In total, a fabulous 310 pledges were made - you can see some of the photos below.
In conjunction with Waste Less Week, we also had a collection for the Singapore Food Bank. Donations came pouring into the Primary School Office and our Eco Rangers had the proud job of handing over 3 whole boxes of food donations. Sodexo kindly topped up our contribution, donating one cup of rice for every photo pledge that was made. That's a lot of rice!

Waste Less Week was a big success and it was wonderful to see everyone in the community thinking of ways that they can cut down and waste less. Let's keep it going!
