My Latest Tweet
I was volunteer Mom at J's preschool the other day and was a little shocked at the waste.
While I can understand using paper towels for the kids to dry their hands (it must be a germy place!) I don't get why they don't have dish towels to dry with after washing the art supplies. EVERYTHING was washed and dryed using paper towels.
Then there was the garbage - everything went in there. It would have been so simple (and educational for the kids) to put a couple of blue boxes in the classroom but nope, everything is headed for the landfill.
They ask parents for spare plastic containers for craft supplies, but I gotta tell ya I'm a little reluctant... at least if I keep them at home they'll get recycled. At preschool they'll turfed in the trash once they're used.
In case you're wondering, it's a city rec centre preschool, which in every other way is excellent (partly why it surprises me that they're so NOT green!).
Anyway... just my beef for today...
