Ecolabelled Schools Push for Greener Politicians

Posted 22 November 2007 by Jacob Malthouse to Ecolabel News.

Students from schools that are part of the Ecoschools programme are pushing politicians in Malta to stop using disposable bottles, plates and cups at their meetings and to stop mailing political leaflets.

According to an article in the Times of Malta the Ecoschools programme was introduced in 2002 by Nature Trust. Since then four schools out of sixty participants have achieved “green flag” status for their serious environmental commitment. There are 17,000 schools worldwide participating in the ecoschools programme.
