Green Tip: Buying Organic

For your own well being, consider the “clean fifteen” and “dirty dozen” when buying organic produce. Clean fifteen are relatively free of pesticides while the dirty dozen are often coated and better to buy organic.

Please join Waynflete’s consulting psychologist, Dr. John Stewart, and a panel of Upper School students on Thursday, February 1 for an evening to talk about the evolving role of technology in the lives of​ teens. ​This is open to all Upper School students and their parents. We are also strongly encouraging freshman students and their parents to attend as an extension of Seminar. ​

Green tip from WEAG: If in a school year each one of us uses a plastic container for lunch and put them together, we can fill up the entire Waynflete library with plastic waste!!

Please try bring your own reusable containers to get salad and other food from the cafe! This can help significantly reduce the use of plastic containers at our school 🙂
