Parents put to the green test

RWR Education officer Damien Morris gets put to the test


The Recycle Western Riverside ‘test the grown ups’ competition was designed to be a fun family activity that would stimulate family discussion about recycling and get households thinking about what they could do to reduce the amount of rubbish they produced.

Part of the aim of the competition was also to find out how much children’s environmental education at school influences their family’s behaviour at home.
