First Grammar Bendigo is educating their students on the benefits of recycling.
A new sustainability plan at the early education centre is teaching children about the importance of recycling.
Having the sustainability plan in place lets sustainability be part of children’s daily routines and practices.
Manager Jackie Hoskin said everyone at the centre was excited about the program.
“It is so exciting to be the one of the first Early Learning Centre’s in Bendigo to incorporate organic recycle bins for our children,” she said.
“Each of our rooms provide small bins lined with green, biodegradable bags, which encourage children to recycle their food scraps at meal times.”
First Grammar Bendigo also takes part in other sustainability practices such as using solar energy.
