Meric College Green Tip #19 - TerraCycle Pen Recycling

As the term and year draw to a close, may I remind you that there is a Terracyle pen recycling box in the iC near the photocopier.

TerraCycle, one of the fastest growing green companies in the world and has found a way to recycle, up-cycle, re-use, or otherwise transform many items that can't go into mainstream recycling and therefore end up in landfill.

TerraCycle has created a zero waste solution for pens, pencils and markers. Use this box to recycle pens and pen caps, mechanical pencils, markers and marker caps, permanent markers, and permanent marker caps.

CASE Space School at NASA!

CASE Space School at NASA is currently providing 27 girls from Canberra with an unforgettable STEM experience as 293 students from 44 girls’ schools across the country are enjoying their Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia trip, in partnership with Actura.

Green Tip #18 - Ekodeck Plus

Welcome to this week’s sustainability news......

The new benches in the quadrangle have been completed and they look fabulous!

Even more exciting is that fact that it is made from Ekodeck Plus, a timber substitute which is a composite of reclaimed timber and bamboo and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).

You may also be interested to learn that in addition to decking made up of Ekodeck Plus, the natural timber trim is reclaimed timber from the spectator seats of the indoor pool at the AIS, which was completed stripped out. A great example of re-purposing.
