Merici College Green Tip #34 – Oceans Over Plastic Dress

Chelsea Giovinazzo, Year 11 student, designed a dress partially made from recycled plastic bags to highlight the perilous dilemma of plastics in our oceans and environment. The dress was made for the unit "Design for Futures" which focuses on sustainability through repair, repurpose and recycling. Displayed in the school library, the dress seeks to drive awareness of the risks from plastic to our global waterways and ecosystems.

Merici Sw(op) Shop Thanks!

Thanks everyone for supporting our #MericiSAM Sw(op) Shop on Tuesday 3 November. Your gold coin donation will go to WWF's Koala's Forever Programme. The iconic Australian koala is facing extinction. After the bushfires with 6000 koalas lost in NSW alone, some key koala populations became officially extinct. WWF has a plan to double koala numbers along our east coast by 2050 and, in so doing, pull the precious populations we have left back from the brink.

We look forward to formally welcoming our students next year and hope that there final few weeks in primary school are filled with lots of happiness.

Merici College Green Tip #33 - Save clothing from landfill at Merici Sw(op) Shop event Tuesday 3 November

Australians buy an average of 27 kilograms of new textiles each year and then discard about 23 kilograms into landfill  – and two-thirds of those discards are manmade synthetic/plastic fibres that may never breakdown.

Sustainability consultant Jane Milburn said Australians are the second-largest consumers of new textiles after north Americans who annually buy 37kg each.

The good news is that you can be part of the solution.
