Greening Your School : Recycling

Recycling means more than just sorting your waste – green building takes this a step further by recycling building materials and reducing the amount of waste to landfill.

Quick wins

  • Start a compost or worm farm. Fruit and vegetable scraps, garden clippings and leaves make up nearly 40% of household waste. A school compost or worm farm can recycle green waste and create a natural fertiliser. Draw up a school roster and ask each class to take it in turns to collect organic scraps from the schoolyard – which will keep your school looking clean and green!
  • Set a target to save trees. It takes 17 trees to make one tonne of paper. Encourage children using both sides of paper, use scrap paper for artwork and put their unwanted paper in the recycling bin. Audit your students’ paper consumption and set a target to save trees.
  • Say no to plastic. Australians use over 10 million plastic bags each day. Make your school a plastic bag free zone. And while you’re at it, ask parents to avoid using plastic wrap in school lunches. Sandwiches can go straight into school lunch boxes and old-fashioned brown paper bags can be recycled.

The green thing I do

I always water the plants, and I don’t frequently use air conditioning since it releases harmful gases. I also recycle paper.
-Norman John,12, PerakThe greenest thing I‘ve done was for a competition during the recycling day at my school when I was 10 years old. I made a Petronas Twin Tower using plastic bottles and aluminium cans. I won second place.
-Dheepan Perisamy, 16, Kuala Lumpur

Hmm…I guess this can be considered green. I got bored of my long denim jeans so I cut it into shorts and used the remaining bits as material for a bag I made myself. And I‘m still using it now!
-Alicia Foo, 16, Malacca

When trekking through the National Park in Pahang, I donated my remaining pocket money to the Adopt-A-Fish programme at the Ikan Kelah Sanctuary, which was established to protect the endangered gold-finned river fish.
-Goh Ni Kol, 16, Kuala Lumpur

I help my dad make our own compost. We really enjoy doing it. From piling up our vegetable and fruit peelings in our aired container to maintaining its moisture levels to finally using the black and powdery product for our vegetable and flower garden. The long process gets the two of us feeling somewhat content.
-Thulsimalar Shunmugathason,17, Malacca

I always sort the paper to give to the recycling lorry that goes around with ‘Sau Gao Pou Chi’.  I use both sides of the paper. I do not leave the tap on when brushing my teeth. I do not use the air-conditioner at night when it‘s chilly, and the list goes on. I hope these little actions will conserve and preserve our environment!
-Eer Kai Song, 16, Selangor

I cut down on my consumption of beef.The production of one kg of beef releases the equivalent of 36.4 kg of carbon, not counting the other harmful gases.
-Alicia Loh, 15, Selangor

When moved to a new house a few years ago, my mother and I realised that there were no trees around the neighbourhood. My siblings, my parents and I planted trees throughout the area. Now there are banana trees, papaya trees and even chilli plants in our neighbourhood.

-Patricia Anne Naikar-Roges,17, Kuala Lumpur

To tell the truth, the greenest thing I have ever done is just watering the plants and trees in my house garden!
-Ruth Kezia Hope Muthu,15, Negri Sembilan

I use rechargeable batteries and recycling newspapers.
-Bhavina Kaur,14, Kuala Lumpur

All systems go: (from left) Buddhist Maha Vihara president Leslie Tilak, Lim and Leela getting ready to collect rubbish to be recycled at this year’s Wesak celebrations in Buddhist Maha Vihara in Brickfields.

EVERY year, thousands of devotees visit the Buddhist Maha Vihara to celebrate Wesak Day but at the end of the day they leave the usual mess of used paper cups, plastic bottles, candles, flowers and food waste strewn all over the temple grounds.

Last year, the temple’s Dhamma-duta Development Youth (D2Y) group came up with an environmentally-friendly solution to the problem together with non-governmental organisation, Treat Every Environ-ment Special (TrEES).
