MTG Goes Green – Introducing the Green Break

School: Mons-Tabor-Gymnasium
City: Montabaur
Class/Course: English course grade 9
Teacher(s): Nina Allgaier
Our Plan:  
"We developed a lot of different sustainability action plans that dealt with toxic fashion, our water and energy consumption and the food we consume. But we, as a group, chose this particular plan for the competition because we believe it provides quite easy steps that everyone can take to make this world a better place. And to reach this goal, it's best to start with our personal surroundings (our school) and our habits first.
Whenever it's our turn to do the daily schoolyard cleanup, we see a lot of plastic and paper waste that can be traced back to our school's facilities (the vending machine and the kiosk). Obviously, we as students and customers of the machine and the kiosk are part of the waste problem at our school. But as we are part of the problem, we are also the ones who can change something about it. So we developed our action plan and prepared a flyer about the Green Breaks at MTG to introduce it to our fellow students. We're still working on the project and looking forward to presenting our ideas to our principal soon."
