Eco-friendly schools are not only important for the well-being of the environment, but they’re also cost-friendly, especially when it comes to energy and water usage. It’s really a win-win situation. So let's make our school "Go Green".
Going green is very useful for the environment. When you decide to go green then you’re already halfway there! There are some simple ways that will help for the eco-friendly schools movement.
Here are simple steps to get started !
1. Use Eco-Friendly Lights:-
Turn off lights in rooms that aren’t being used and use the Eco-friendly lights that use less energy than standard lights. These lights are in the affordable varieties. With these lights, energy and cost both can be reduced.
2. Say No to Plastic:-
As we know that, plastic is poison for the environment. Plastic is one of the most highly wasted products. We can reduce this in the school to avoid using plastic as much as possible and switch to using either regular dishes, or at least paper plates and utensils so that they can be recycled.
3.Use Recycled Paper:-
At the school, teachers should teach the students the importance of using more eco-friendly varieties, such as recycled paper for notepads. So they will reduce the wastage of the papers to save the trees as well.
4. Get Creative:-
To go green, then there is only one way that is reducing, reusing, and recycling. It’s all about being creative, and seeing where and how you can make small changes in your daily life. Schools should teach the students using eco-friendly materials to decorate the classroom and projects.
5. Go Digital:-
To be going green, schools have to take this step first at the front desk. School should replace its manual visitor registration system into a digital visitor management system. Visitor management system is a digital system that manages the students, staff and visitors digitally. This system reduces the use of papers, makes the school safe and digital.
