#MericiMoment Wall of Words – Samantha Bruce (Class of 2011)

At Merici, the motto 'Dare to Dream' really stuck with me. It pushed me to dream big and pursue those dreams. Merici was where I discovered my passion for creative media/tv/film (a heavily male-dominated industry). Looking back on those media classes when I was 17/18years old, I wouldn't have guessed that I would become one of the youngest Television Directors for one of the major networks in the country.

Merici College Green Tip #3 - What can you do with used batteries?

Every year thousands of tonnes of batteries are used in Australia, many of which dangerously end up in landfills. 

The metals found in alkaline and rechargeable batteries include cadmium, mercury and lead. 

If left exposed, these metals can leak and contaminate the soil and groundwater, causing significant health and environmental risks.

Rechargeable batteries are considered hazardous waste and should never be thrown away as general waste.

Green Tip #2 - Meric College Green Tip #2 - Have you wondered if what you do makes a difference?

If you have wondered if your individual efforts to compost can make a difference, read on.....

Australian group, Compost Revolution, tested the idea across 41,000 Australian homes. 

The result was 10 million kgs of food waste diverted from landfill and 19 million kgs of greenhouse gases avoided.

Just how much is 10 million kgs? 

That's the equivalent of over 83,000 full-size wheelie bins of perfectly good resources U-turned out of landfill and sent back to the Earth to replenish the soil, grow veggies and plants, and sequester carbon or:
