2012 already!!! :O Well we only got 12 more months to continue recycling and bring Overseas School of Colombo’s ecological footprint down; we’d better get started. This is our first post in the year of 2012, and yes we are late on the update but we did get a lot done so far. Just look at the statistics:

The graph shows low amounts of Paper, Cardboard and Plastics. This means that the consumption rate of paper, cardboard and plastics at OSC has decreases. When you compare the graph of 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 you will see a significant amount of change in the amounts of paper, cardboard and plastics. The spike in 2nd of September is because it was the first recycling session after summer vacation and no recycling was done during the break.

The total amount of money that we have gained so far is 3000/= RS less than last year’s total amount. This supports the evidence that consumption rate of paper, cardboard and plastics have decreased.

This is an achievement for recycling and sustainability! We will continue to reduce the ecological footprint! Go Green! And don’t forget get to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! 🙂
