Making a personal difference


As a result of our inquiry into sustainability and how we make an impact on the Earth with every choice we make, I would like you to do the following:

1. Make a commitment to reduce your ecological footprint in three ways.
2. Create a "footprint diary" on your sustainability blog.
3. Monitor your progress honestly - don't feel bad if you find it difficult - just do your best.
4. Evaluate your choices weekly and estimate which of your three is the most effective.

So make some suggestions here as to what you may try and why. Then start your "diary" on your sustainable blog.

We'll see who has made the biggest difference to the Earth in Week ten.

P.s Mr woody, This isn't really on topic, but I am going to try and start a petition that says " Girls should be able to wear long white socks and stockings and all students should be able to wear "skivvy's"

What do you think?

Pinky, I think that if you want to be really heard you might be beter off patitioning for one thing, like the stockings, rather than going for all three. I also think stokings are going to be more likely to be accepted because they are tidyer than socks and easier for everyone to have the same kind. I feel for you! My school uniform was a brown sack! We also pititioned!
