Wrigleys : Wrigley Pacific Sustainability Report 2010
waSTE waTchErS Waste Watchers is New South Wales’ leading environmental education program for primary schools. The program builds a creative learning environment where students enjoy fun, hands-on activities that increase their understanding of waste, litter and sustainability issues. The Waste Watchers program was conducted in over 450 schools in NSW in 2010, with more than 55,000 children participating. In 2011, the program will reach the exciting milestone of half a million students taught since the program was established in 1996. In 2010, Wrigley sponsored the expansion of the Waste Watchers program to extend to schools in the Australian Capital Territory, conducting workshops in 16 schools for more than 1500 children.
