Down To Earth Schools

Down To Earth Schools (a division of Down To Earth Events) has been created to assist schools in the following:

  • introducing reusable and/or compostable packaging to the school's canteen;
  • appropriate bin systems to collect the waste;
  • procedures to avoid waste contamination;
  • the correct removal and composting of the waste once collected;
  • various other tested systems to ensure that it is a streamlined process that can be implemented in your school.

We can assist schools in saving up to 90% of waste that would normally go to landfill.

On Offer (Earlybird rates):

  • $100 Assembly Talk;
  • $50 Student/staff presentation;
  • $50 p.h. Ongoing consultation;
  • $50 Downloadable bin signage and workbook.

Our goal is:

  • To raise awareness of the effect of litter and waste on the local environment and wider community by implementing a Zero Waste Heroes Guide in all schools that meet our criteria. Upon completion, this is followed up with a Down To Earth Schools' Certification;
  • To increase student and teacher knowledge and practical skills in the prevention of waste creation as well as managing waste once it has accumulated;
  • To improve students’ behaviour in the prevention of waste creation as well as managing waste once it has accumulated;
  • To improve the schools’ waste management systems so that up to 90% of waste is diverted from landfill bins in schoolyards.

We offer an assembly talk, separate student/staff presentation, workbook and bin signage as well as ongoing consultation and Down To Earth Schools' certification.
