Today Year 5 were very lucky to attend a presentation from Grin Green, an NGO who promote using less plastic in Thailand. They taught us some amazing facts about plastic use in Thailand and around the world and shocked us with their information. We also took part in a Kahoot to learn more about how plastic affects the world.
This was a very worthwhile visit and it was particularly interesting to learn that an average person uses and throws away 700 plastic bags every 3 months! That is an awful lot of waste. We were very grateful for their visit as we have just been writing letters to 7 Eleven to ask them to stop giving out plastic bags.
