“The Asturian project comprised of a series of simple, practical and useful activities intended to raise awareness about the issue of waste. Additionally, it aimed to promote the 3Rs approach: reduce, reuse and recycle as well as encourage pupils to use it in their daily life. Firstly, a campaign fighting against obsolescence and promoting recycling and reduction was carried out. Secondly, the school took some action to start reusing paper as well as promoted reuse in general by organising a collection campaign of used clothes and toys to be donated to the EMAUS association. Lastly, sustainability topic was addressed in the canteen at school, by encouraging the use of local products, banning the packaged juices as well as pastries cooked with palm oil”.
