The Problem

To set up a sustainable, zero waste and effective litterless lunch system at Clifton Terrace Model School!

Our Plan

Each week, a surprise day of the week will be Litterless Lunch Day. An Enviro student will announce the Litterless Lunch Day at hui that day! Every Litterless Lunch Day, the teacher on lunch duty will take the bottle top box on duty with them. They will check students for zero waste lunches. If you have a litterless lunch, you can take a bottle top from the box and put in your class tin in your classroom! It doesn’t matter which colour! The first class to fill their tin to the top will be awarded The Litterless Lunch Cup at the next assembly, and the cup will stay in their class until the next class takes it. If more than one class reaches the top at the same time, the bottle tops will be counted! It takes about 100 bottle tops to reach the top of the tin, so it will take classes over a month to reach the top! Each term there will probably be one or two winners. For the old Zero Waste Lunch system we had to make tokens out of laminated paper all the time, which was wasteful. With our new Litterless Lunch system we can reuse the bottle tops and the cup over and over again, so it is sustainable. Good luck with your litterless lunching!
