Merici College Green Tip #19 - It's not only whales eating plastic...What's your plastic diet?

A new study commissioned by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and carried out by University of Newcastle, Australia concluded that on average people could be ingesting approximately 5 grams of plastic every week, which is the equivalent weight of a credit card.

The single largest source of plastic ingestion is through water, both bottled and tap, all over the world. 

Of the consumables studied, those with the highest recorded plastic levels include shellfish, beer and salt.

New Mural for #MERICI60

Our 60th Anniversary Mural is now up in the Old Quad. It is amazing and captures the story of the founding 10 religious orders, our Catholic faith, Australia, our indigenous connections, all facets of education, co-curricular activities, sustainability and so much more.

The artists, Hullabaloo Studio, have given us the story behind the many design elements on the mural which can be found in the images.

We would like to thank Christine, Regina and Megan (Hullabaloo Studio) and our art students for creating such a beautiful piece of art!
