As the world becomes more eco conscious, it is becoming more and more important to think about making packaging recyclable or biodegradable to help with our carbon foot print. Landfill sites are a major cause of pollution and many items on the landfill sites are not biodegradable which means they will take forever to disappear into the earth.

Following requests from teachers at the Eco-Schools Show and subsequent talks with the investors, Eco-Schools are delighted to announce that the Eco-Schools Solar Programme Free Power for Schools deadline for applications has been extended to 15 July.

Eco-Schools advised that "initial assessments of the applications so far received reveal that around 80 percent of schools will be eligible for solar panels. So there is a really good chance for your school."

This may seem like a surprising statement, but the world's supply of fresh water is finite. As global population rises, the demand for food and the water that produces it grows inexorably. Globally, farming accounts for 70 per cent of our withdrawals from this fixed "bank account", this in the face of ever-greater domestic and industrial usage.
