Sustainability at Padua College

As a community which values the welfare of the environment, there are a few simple things we can do to minimise our wastage. 

The printers available for student use at the library are a fantastic convenience, but we always need to be mindful of how much paper is being used. Unfortunately, there have been stacks of uncollected documents piling up in the library. This photograph shows how much printing wasn't claimed after just three days! It's an important reminder to always double-check that you're sending your documents to the correct printer, and to only print what is necessary. 

Another easy, but effective thing we can do for the environment is to ensure that we're disposing of our rubbish thoughtfully. The yard is a space which we all share, and so we all have a responsibility to look after it. 

Little actions can have a big impact!
