Invisible waste is invisible but weighs on the environment!
• WHAT will be done
The activity aims to raise awareness on the prevention of invisible waste. This is a huge amount of waste generated during the manufacturing and distribution process of products with a strong environmental impact. In fact, much of the invisible waste cannot be recycled and ends up in landfills and incinerators with a heavy cost for the climate. For sustainable production and consumption, products must instead have a longer useful life, be easier to repair and recycle. The business intends to provide information on the pounds of waste that are produced to manufacture and deliver a smartphone to the store or home. The pupils, after having carried out an information and documentation activity on the subject of invisible waste, will calculate the kilos of invisible waste produced for the purchase of their mobile phones. The data provided by each class will be used to create an information panel with which the enormous amount of waste produced to manufacture the mobile phones of all the pupils of the classes involved will be visible. The information panel will be posted at the school for an educational impact on all other classes not directly involved in the activity.
