Thank you so much to Ciara from the one good idea project for coming to talk to us (1P) on Friday.
We really enjoyed the mix and match game and learning how we can help the environment.
We will follow up this talk by doing an action project in CSPE class and maybe we will reach the national finals of The One Good Idea Project.
Some of the facts really surprised us:
A photocopier left on standby overnight wastes enough energy … to make 30 cups of tea.
Recycling 1 aluminium can … saves enough energy to power a television for 3 hours. (Repak 2008)
Ireland gets only 2% of its energy from … renewable resources. (SEI 2008)
If every house in Ireland changed just 4 regular light bulbs for 4 CFL bulbs … we would save 720,055 tones of CO2 per year.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that … climate change is responsible for 150,000 deaths per year.
