Eco-club: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover

Contribution by Ms Miros Silva-Ordaz and Ms Jennifer LaForge 
In our Thursday afternoon after-school activity, the Eco-Club has been busy with a circular economy initiative (reduce, reuse, recycle, and recover, rather than simply discard). A fun group of MYP 1, 2 & 3 students have been sewing up a storm with the goal of creating at least 2 strands of bunting to hang in our secondary campuses. The students began by learning about the circular economy, they then created their own templates and brought in cotton fabrics from home. After only 3 lessons, we were able to sew up a portion of the first strand. Congrats to these hard workers!
