Merici College Green Tip #22 - Can you plant a tree too?

Friday 26th July was National Tree Day!

National Tree Day is a call to action for all Australians to put their hands in the earth and give back to their community.

This year’s Tree Report, entitled Living Cities: Trees in the Urban Environment digs deep into the science on trees and the countless benefits they provide in our urban environment:

Lifeline Canberra Stress Down Day @ Merici

Stress Down Day is a fun and easy initiative designed to reduce stress and raise funds for Lifeline Canberra. Research shows that 90% of Australians need to stress less! What can you do today to stress less? Spend time with friends, eat your favourite food, enjoy nature, hug your best friend, call a family member, or go for a walk. Too many to name, but plenty of options, that hopefully can make their way into your life routine and help you stress less every day.

Student Reflection - Rosemary Zielinski (International Physics Olympiad)

As part of the Australian team for the International Physics Olympiad, I was privileged enough to have the opportunity to go to Israel to compete in the July holidays. This was undoubtedly a life-changing experience: seeing the world, and meeting the world's future scientists. I met passionate students from across the globe, from countries including, but not limited to: Kazakhstan, Brazil, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Germany, Poland, France, Korea, and Israel.

Merici College Green Tip #21 - Sunglasses upcycled from commercial fishing nets!

If you are in the market for some new sunglasses, consider these.....they are upcycled from commercial gill nets removed from the Great Barrier Reef. Developed as a partnership led by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) it is hoped that the purchase of these Reefcycle sunglasses will allow more commercial fishing nets to be upcycled into sunglasses, saving more marine life.

Merici College Green Tip #20 - Terracycle "Recycling the Unrecyclable"

Toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes and their packaging and dental floss containers are not recyclable through conventional recycling streams.  

However Terracycle is an innovative company that has made a business of "recycling the unrecyclable".  

A collection station will be set up at Merici in Term 3, the bonus is that we can earn one cent per item to put towards sustainability projects here at the school.
