ESC Environmental Club
Earnshaw State College has a passionate group of students who are working with staff and students to make 2020 a more environmentally friendly world and to help make a difference with our carbon footprint.
Students meet weekly with Ms Korbatits and Ms Bates.
CRS - Container Refund Scheme
Students recycle eligible containers with the 10c refund logo into cages and bins at the college, or collect at home in the supplied orange meshed bags. We ask students to bring in their collection of containers in week 9 each term to help with awareness and to help raise funds for the student council.
Environmental club members have begun a composting program within the college. They have several points of collection of suitable food scraps which are turned into compost to be used in gardens throughout the college.
Our students are very keen to increase the number of solar panels at Earnshaw. This project is currently in the planning and researching stages.
