The Green Flag Committee went to visit Glanmore Foods in Blanchardstown to ask if we could cut down on the amount of packaging that comes with our school lunches. We found one excellent solution. From September, each child will have a reusable water bottle that can be filled as necessary. This will cut down on 145 green plastic water bottles being thrown in the bin by us each day.  Or a huge 26, 535 green bottles per school year – just from our school. That is a great help to save the environment!!
