Alexandra Vassallo and Christine Casha, Senior 2 students, have finalized their poster as their entry for the YRE project.
They noticed that there was waste of food and excessive use of single-use plastic as part of the Ninu l-Bninu Scheme for the distribution of fruit and vegetables in schools. They designed a poster to show what is happening at the moment and what they suggest could be the solution, while keeping in mind that healthy eating needs to be promoted in schools. They divided their poster into 9 sections and drew scenes from the school. Their suggestion is that the scheme would alternatively offer whole fruit instead of fruit which is chopped up and put in single-use plastic containers. They support their claim by saying that since fruit is not peeled it will last longer and there will be less waste of food and less plastic packaging which is ending up in our oceans and landfills.
Their slogan is the following: Making our school a better place, little by little.
