What is Sustainable Living?

Sustainable_development.svg.png

Sustainable living is a lifestyle where you use little amount of resources as possible so the enviroment will become less ‘damaged.’ Having a ‘sustainable lifestyle’ because it will leave our future generation with less enviromental problems to deal with.

Having a sustainable lifestyle doesn’t have to be expensive or hard. For example, is it that hard to put your rubbish in the bin? It will only take you a few seconds. If we all make small changes it can make a big difference to our environment.

Here are some ways to make your everyday life more sustainable:

  • The obvious one (don’t litter)
  • Make sure your dishwasher is full before running it
  • Take shorter showers
  • Always turn off lights when you leave the room
  • Bring your own bag when visiting stores or supermarkets
  • After a bath, get a bucket and fill it with all of the water and use it to water your garden
  • Switch to cloth napkins
  • If you have your lunch in a plastic lock-zip bag don’t throw it out give it to your Mum to wash, so you can reuse it.
  • Turn things off at the power point when you are not using it
  • Rug up in Winter instead of putting the heater on

Tanisha out!

Book Show Bag Expo!

On Thursday the 22nd of August, the 5/6 classes held their hard work completing the Book Show Bag Project. At 2:30 we started preparing  for the expo, getting out our show bag, setting up our small parts that added up to finishing our Show Bag. My book was Harry potter and the Philosper’s Stone. We had to completet a lot of activities to get it all finished. We each got a sheet where people could comment. When people started arriving we headed off. I hope people liked my show bag. Before the Expo we had a classmate evaluate our Show Bag. Viki did mine and here is a picture of it.
