How can we reduce our school's impact on Earth's climate?
Buy compostable trays and silverware for the cafeteria
They don't add to the release of greenhouse gases in landfills. They break down naturally over time and contribute to our soil.
Compostable trays and silverware are slightly more expensive than plastic ones by less than 1 cent.
Since compostable materials need electricity to be created, it will release CO2 in the atmosphere.
Also, students' dimwitted brains might not be able to comprehend how to compost something or be too lazy to do it.
Buy reusable trays and silverware for the cafeteria
The trays and silverware can be reused so they don't add to the release of greenhouse gases in landfills.
The school won't have to pay for tons of paper trays and plastic silverware everyday.
However the school will need to pay people to wash the trays and silverware.
A lot of of water would be used to wash the dishes
Heating water also requires electricity which releases CO2 in the atmosphere.
Provide water in reusable water bottles for all students
They will reduce single use plastic water bottles that need to be recycled or end up in landfills which releases greenhouse gases.
The school will have to pay $5 per bottle for each student.
Since students are not responsible these days, they might lost their water bottle and it could end up ina landfill.
Opening a window rather than turning on lights
There might not always be a lot of light in the sky.
If it's too dark, the students can ruin their eyes and they might have to squint to see.
The school won't have to pay so much for the electricity bill.
The school would not use as much electricity therefore not releasing as much greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
