A report by Year 7 about their experiences with Becky and Barry – Environment and Recycling Officers for Portsmouth City Council.
On Friday 10th June 2 guests from Portsmouth City Council came in to teach us about how we could keep our city clean and how we should stick to the 3 Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. They showed us how we get our food cans, by mining rocks for metal and in process creating a massive crater. They also showed us how we can reuse used objects such as computers and cans; a few cans can power a television for months, an old computer can make a home for cats, some glass bottles and jars can make candles. At the end of the lesson we took a class photo with them and they gave us new pens saying “Green neighbours, helping you save money and energy”.
