Wednesday the 7th of October 2015 , the green schools committee had a visitor. His name was Dara Dwyer from Kildare County Council. He was telling us about water and the 7 steps for getting our third green flag .
here are the 7 steps he told us:
1) green-schools committee
2) environmental review
3) action plan
4) monitoring and evaluation
5) curriculum work
6) informing and involving
7) green code
He also said we should have 4 out of 7 of the steps completed by Christmas.
He also stated that if you waste water you basically waste energy because if you waste water the council would have to pump the water back to you so if you save water its a double win !!!!!!!!!!
if parents want tips on saving water then visit www.taptips.ie .
did you know?
The average 5-minute shower takes 15-25 gallons of water--around 40 gallons are used in 10 minutes!!!!
so please if you see a tap dripping turn it of and if you see a leaky pipe tell an adult ....
and remember "DON'T LET THE DRIP DROP"
