Green Team

St. George's Green Team is an Extra-Curricular Activity for about a dozen St. George's students. They meet once a week to physically collect the recycling from each room within the school. The mandate of the group is to help make the school "greener" by proposing and implementing sustainability projects, such as installing a bike rack, planting trees and installing flow-friendly water fountains.

Tip: Plastic Water Bottles

St. George's is now plastic water bottle free. Plastic water bottles are no longer sold in our vending machines! Did you know that it takes 3-5 litres of water to produce 1 litre of bottled water? Your brain needs water, not plastic. Bottled water free campuses are important for fostering support and confidence in publicly delivered tap water. If young people develop the habit of refilling water bottles for free instead of paying inflated prices for privatized bottled water, Canada’s important public water systems will benefit. Who needs plastic bottles?!

Tip: Brita Bottles

If you use a Brita pitcher at home for your drinking water instead of bottled water, you're already saving the environment and your bank account. But, did you know that the pitcher filters can actually be recycled too? Brita Canada now pays for the postage for you to mail back your used filters for recycling! FilterForGood.ca Article: "Recycle your Brita Filter" 

Tip: Phantom Electricity

Halloween might be long past, but watch out for Phantom Electricity. Did you know that even when turned "off," most appliances continue to draw electricity and thus keep your metre spinning, your bill rising, and the environment suffering? Use a power bar for your home entertainment centre and your computer and its peripherals. Unplug cellular phone and other chargers when charging is complete. Scare that Phantom out of your house and off your electricity bill!
