F5- BRING YOUR OWN BOTTLE

“Human Impact on Nature”, F5C´s exhibition group launched a Water Bottle Day campaign as an action for change. Students promoted taking action individually and collectively to publicly support positive social and environmental change before and during the Exhibition Day.

How did all started? Several decades ago, beverage companies started selling bottled water, which allowed people to meet their hydration needs and live healthier lifestyles.

What is happening now? Those plastic bottles began showing up in landfills and oceans with plastics that wouldn’t biodegrade, even after centuries. A change is needed!

What can we do? F5C students had an idea that bypassed the disposal centre altogether: The mentor and Form teachers supported this initiative and challenged students and staff to bring to school reusable bottles to be refilled with filtered tap water during the day.

What was the impact? See for yourself….
