  • In our first survey, we found that 154 lightbulbs were left on and 104 of devices were on or on standby.
  • In our second survey, we found that 107of lights were left on and 29 of devices were on or on standby.
  • This means, we have saved 7.71kWh of energy per day.
  • So, in the 10 days we took part, we saved 77.1kWh of energy!
  • If we carried on over the year, we would save 1503kWh of energy!

BUT, we’re not done yet… we can keep remembering to turn off our devices/lights when they’re not used. You can also try this at home.

CHALLENGE:
Could you try a ‘No Electricity Day’ at home? Let an Eco Warrior know if you do.

Our ‘Clothing and Shoes’ recyclying bin

Last May, working with ‘Recycled Clothing Banks’, we recieved a new addition to the playground: our clothing recycling bin and it have been wildly successful.
We are passionate about promoting recycling at St Adrians and we encourage you to keep donating clothes, towels, sheets, blankets, curtains or even shoes!
