Hi Clíodhna,

I think it’s certainly fair to say that  being able to physically see the devastating impact of climate change in communities has a profound effect on children. This ‘lived experience’ certainly provides them with the real-world examples of the damage that can be caused.

Your suggestion about bringing in their own towels or cloths to dry hands is an excellent one. I am always shocked by the frequency at why toilet roll and blue roll is delivered to our school in such huge volumes. If all schools around the country undertook this initiative, it could have a big environmental impact, as well as seeing schools make significant financial savings.
