Eco Inspiration

What a start to the Lower Juniors! You all made your teachers very proud at Minstead and I hope you enjoyed the experience. Has our residential trip to Minstead  inspired you or your family to make a change at home in order to be more eco-friendly? If so, what changes have you made?

You may also like to post some ideas of what changes you think we could make at school or in Hordle in order to have more of an impact on our environment.

    Before Minstead we were already eco warriors, we save rain water in water butts, we turned off the taps when cleaning our teeth, put the plug down when washing our hands and put food waste in the compost bin. Minstead taught me why we did these things. I loved Minstead.

    Since visiting Minstead, I have turned the lights off and I stopped using so much electricity. My dad is making a shed out of recycled wood and we use collected rain water to water the plants in the garden. It was really fun at Minstead and it taught me to reduse,reuse and recycle.(And repair).

    When I returned from Minstead, I had fewer baths, shorter showers. Also, I started to collect egg shells, vegetable peelings, tea bags, egg boxes, fruit skins and grass cuttings to make a compost heap. I recycled newspapers, cereal boxes, paper and magazines. I saved water by switching off the tap when I’m brushing my teeth. I had a fantastic time at Minstead and will always remember it.
