Erasmus goes on…
How to turn trash into treasure
What about the idea to turn trash into treasure? The Erasmus+ project “Let’s save the world” gave us a great idea! Two years ago a group of teachers from “Alighieri-Tanzi” school – Mola di Bari (Italy) decided to start a new experience: “The Eco-locker”.
All the students and teachers at school were invited to contribute to this activity bringing to school waste objects such as bottle caps, ribbons, paper sheets, clothes, pencils etc., that could be reused in school activities.
All these materials were collected, sorted and put in different labelled boxes. In a section of our “Eco-locker” you can find eco-news and critical eco suggestions.
Our fantastic “Eco-locker”
Day by day, the “Eco-locker” has been growing. At the moment its importance is increasing and school community considers it as a resource in all activities. The treasures it contains gave us the opportunity to organize some eco-friendly laboratory activities too. Reusing materials some students created different useful and pretty crafts.
This way waste materials are considered as a precious resource for school activities!
