In an age of environmental consciousness and sustainability, it is crucial to educate the younger generation about the environmental impacts of their daily actions. One area that often goes unnoticed is the amount of packaging waste we generate in our daily lives. For this reason, EWWR is launching the “Packaging Diary” as an effective way to create awareness and promote waste reduction among students in schools.
The Packaging Diary activity
The Packaging Diary is a simple yet impactful activity designed to make students more conscious of the packaging waste they generate. The primary goal of this activity is to encourage students to monitor, record, and discuss the packaging waste produced over a span of one week. Here’s how the Packaging Diary activity can be implemented:
- Step 1: Introduction to packaging waste issue
- Step 2: Distribution of packaging diaries and data recording
- Step 3: Discussion of records and reflection on solutions
- Step 5: Follow-up
- Step 6: Celebrating achievements
This activity is easily replicable at home, in offices, and in other contexts, making it a versatile tool for promoting sustainable practices throughout society.
