Down To Earth Schools

Down To Earth Schools logo

With the ban on some single-use plastics coming to SA we feel there is no better time to get the message into schools and assist them in creating a zero waste policy.

We are now offering a school's assembly presentation, workbook, bin signage and consultation with Down To Earth Schools (a division of Down To Earth Events) to assist schools in introducing reusable and/or compostable packaging to the school's canteen, appropriate bin systems and procedures to avoid contamination as well as the correct removal and composting of the waste.

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

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 School Yard and Zero Waste Fetes/Events;
  • To increase student and teacher knowledge and practical skills in preventing and managing litter and waste;
  • To improve students’ behaviour in preventing and managing litter and waste;
  • To promote and improve the schools’ waste management systems and treatments;
  • To introduce reusable and/or compostable packaging into school canteens.

We offer a presentation, workbook, bin signage and ongoing consultation.
