To reduce the amount of materials going to landfill, SKPS together with Albert Park Primary, the EcoCentre and Port Phillip Council won a $20,000 grant to reduce litter in our Bay (Litter Innovation Fund – Penguin Friendly Event Precinct Project). The grant is administered by Sustainability Victoria and has funded a number of great initiatives at our school. As part of this grant we just received our very own ‘Washing Up Kit”, including cutlery and crockery for up to 200 people. This allows us to make our events even more sustainable by replacing disposable cutlery and crockery with re-usable ones.
A special thank goes to the Eco Centre who not only purchased all the items of the kit but also painstakingly marked more than 1400 items with red nail polisher!
