S.I.F.E Visitors (Jo & Clemont)

Hi, on Tuesday 2nd June 09, my class had two visitors from the University of Waikato. Some of the informatian I learnt was:
  • Recycling is good
  • Reduce> Reuse> Recycle (The 3 Rs)
  • If you turn the tap of while brushing your teeth you can help the environment
  • If you have a worm farm, never give the worms citrus
  • Paper takes 2.5 months to break down in a landfill
  • Milk Cartons take 5 years to break down in a landfill
  • Cigarettes take 10 years to break down
  • Tin cans take 100 years to break down in a landfill
  • Beer cans (aluminium) take 200-500 years to break down in a landfill
  • We have 1/32 of the earth to grow food on.
  • "What's the point of future leaders if they have nothing to lead?"


  1. Great work! I am sending Kris on to check out how much everyone has learned from his talk.
    Your note taking skills will be very helpfull for you when you go to highschool and uni:)
    well done:)

  2. By the way, 'helpful' is spelt 'helpful' not 'helpfull'

    Otherwise thanks for the advice.
