Sus­tain­abil­ity seeds grow


CHIL­DREN at Mer­cyCare’s Lands­dale Early Learn­ing Cen­tre are set­ting an ex­am­ple on min­imis­ing waste.

The cen­tre will cel­e­brate the prac­ti­cal ways it has in­cor­po­rated en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly prac­tices into daily rou­tines this Na­tional Re­cy­cling Week.

Cen­tre man­ager Tammy Dodd said find­ing ways to re­duce waste sparked an in­ter­est in sus­tain­abil­ity.

The cen­tre set up a worm farm and col­lected kitchen scraps from lunches and snacks.

Other ini­tia­tives in­clude check­ing lights and taps are turned off, us­ing less pa­per tow­els and hav­ing colour­coded re­cy­cling bins.

Pay­ton Meyn and Maleah Moult are learn­ing about sus­tain­able liv­ing through eco-smart ini­tia­tives at their early learn­ing cen­tre.
