Recycle at the end of the school year

There are many opportunities to act sustainably at this time of year, says IGS Head of Sustainability Carmelo Fidele.

As we approach the end of the academic year, it’s time for our annual clean up. Every year mountains of discarded texts and stationary are abandoned and end up in landfill. This need not happen.

Please use these options to reuse and recycle:

Sustainable School Shop

The PTF has paid an annual subscription to the Sustainable School Shop so you can buy and sell uniforms, texts and instruments online.

The uniform and text lists are preloaded so it’s super easy. This initiative replaced our annual swap meet usually held at this time of year.

Ts Textbooks

Ts Textbooks buys and sells second hand texts and it’s easy to use.
Just email them a photo of the books you have to sell.

  • Recycle unwanted pens and pencils.
  • Recycle e-waste including batteries.
  • Save money and the planet at the same time!
