Reducing Paper Waste and Garbage at Cariboo Hill Secondary

  • Location
    Burnaby, British Columbia
  • Status

The Problem

Our wish is to reduce the overall use of paper in our school and to improve the recycling process. We want to support teachers and students by designing course websites that have all relevant resources, such as worksheets, recipes, study materials available digitally.

Our Plan

Students will reduce paper waste by designing websites for teachers. Teachers will be able to share class resources digitally vs. printing on paper. Students will also design posters for each classroom with a printer to ensure that students select the right printer and settings when printing. Students will also design posters with photos of typically available products at our school that will be displayed at each recycling station to encourage proper recycling.
