Students and staff are encouraged to bring their own re-usable:
cups to re-fill with coffee/tea/hot chocolate,
lunch-boxes to bring food or buy food in it,
water bottles to re-fill from water fountains.
Awareness on EWWR and the action proposed started in mid-October. A dedicated poster was put up on the screens in the JC Foyer area, included in the weekly JC academic newsletter, and on the University of Malta – Junior College Facebook page.
The school canteen will also help in this action buy not providing plastic lids if any hot beverages are bought in a disposable cup, as well as accepted in providing any hot food in re-usable lunch-boxes instead of styrofoam during the EWWR.
The school has water fountains available, and re-usable water bottles can be re-filled, rather than buy a new water bottle.
Moreover, a representative from Wasteserv (Malta) was invited to hold a workshop to staff and students on how the school can manage waste separation, especially paper and plastic. This will be held during the EWWR on the 21st of November, 2017.
