The Wasteful Witch thinks the earth’s resources are infinite, loves the convenience of single use plastic, and has never heard of recycling.
Why use only one paper towel for drying your hands when you can just keep pulling more out of the dispenser? Why bring food in reusable containers when those little prepackaged snacks are so much easier and more attractive? And why spend the time and effort to collect recycling when you can just toss it all in the garbage - even just over your shoulder!
Luckily Kootenay students know better. A classroom visit from the Wasteful Witch will provide plenty of opportunities for your students to show off their knowledge and teach her to mend her ways. And don’t worry if students can’t come up with the answers right away – the Wasteful Witch has a bagful of letters from animal friends that she will share with students to guide them in the right direction.
Note that this presentation will centre on waste free lunches, but can be adapted if there are any other issues that teachers would like to address (for example taking care of classroom supplies like markers, turning off lights when you leave the room).
