Green Tip: Waynflete Earth Hour + Movie Night!

Waynflete Earth Hour

“It’s difficult to get people to understand that the things we find convenient have an impact on the natural environment” -Earth hour mission statement

Wednesday, March 21st from 10:00-11:00 am (Upper school break through third block), the Waynflete community will be participating in their own earth hour. After the announcement is made, please turn off all lights and unnecessary sources of electricity.

Earth hour is a world-wide event intended to raise awareness about current environmental issues affecting our planet and proving that small changes amongst individuals can impact on the world greatly. Waynflete believes that as a community, it is important to take part in this movement for positive change, becoming conscious of how our everyday conveniences impact the world in which we live on a larger scale.

Movie Night

In celebration of world-wide earth hour, this Wednesday from 6:30-8:30, WEAG will be screening the movie Before the Flood in the Franklin Theatre with free admission. The movie follows Leo Dicaprio as he examines current day impacts of climate change. It also features President Obama, Pope Francis, and a host of other experts. At the conclusion of the film, we will have a dialogue to discuss topics of interest from the movie. Bring all of your friends, this will be a good time!

Green Tip:

Conserve water!

We all use water bottles daily but forget what happens to the water that is leftover at the end of the day. Rather than pouring excess water down the drain, make use of it by filling a water dish of a pet or using it to water plants.
