Grade 5 discovered that since we started using plastic 65 years ago, we have generated 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste globally, most of it still in landfill. Australian households create more than 666,000 tonnes of plastic packaging waste every year. Tonnes of food and clothing also ends up in landfill each year.
So what can we do to tackle our waste problem? The grade 5 students did some research to find out more about where our waste ends up and how we can reduce, reuse and recycle more of it. They wanted to enourage others to jump on board with the War on Waste using animation and Augmented reality.
