Ditch Your Car­bon Cup Print

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE group of stu­dents be­hind Charleville CBS Sec­ondary School’s ‘Ditch Your Car­bon Cup Print’ project will ap­proach lo­cal busi­nesses for spon­sor­ship, which un­der the C.S.R. (Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity) scheme, they may con­sider do­nat­ing funds to en­sure the suc­cess of the ‘Ditch Your Car­bon Cup Print’ week.

Busi­nesses can ben­e­fit from such spon­sor­ship in a num­ber of ways, such as a recog­ni­tion and as a pub­lic re­la­tions ex­er­cise, as well as con­tribut­ing to the education of the stu­dents in Charleville (ex­pe­ri­en­tial model of learn­ing) and ed­u­ca­tional ini­tia­tives such as Home­work Club, CodeBro’s Cod­ing Club, So­cial and Sci­en­tific Project work.

The work is on­go­ing and the stu­dents are re­ly­ing on the sup­port of the lo­cal peo­ple in en­sur­ing that their project is a suc­cess.

Peo­ple can help the stu­dents in this ini­tia­tive in a num­ber of ways, such as by par­tic­i­pat­ing in the sur­veys con­ducted be­fore and dur­ing the des­ig­nated ‘Ditch Your Car­bon Cup Print’ week, or by tak­ing a re­us­able cup for their daily take-out bev­er­age to their favourite cof­fee/ bev­er­age out­let dur­ing the des­ig­nated week.

They may also buy the new com­pact, col­lapsi­ble, to­tally sealed, re­us­able cup, the pro­ceeds of which will go to the school for ed­u­ca­tional ini­tia­tives.

Pending the suc­cess of this week the stu­dents will build on the project and ad­vance it fur­ther. The ‘Ditch Your Car­bon Cup Print’ week will pro­vide a model which will be pre­sented to the Depart­ment of the Environment and the EPA for con­sid­er­a­tion to be rolled out na­tion­ally.

Such a cam­paign would be es­tab­lished as an an­nual des­ig­nated week/fort­night held through­out the towns and vil­lages of Ire­land. Charleville C.B.S. will pro­vide schools in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing with a ‘DYCCP’ Education Pack, which will en­able them to or­gan­ise, host and eval­u­ate their lo­cal ‘Ditch Your Car­bon Cup Print’ week.
