I congratulate Ferncourt Public School on its Waste Warriors program.

The Waste Warriors program encourages students to reduce food waste by bringing a nude lunch to school every Tuesday and Wednesday. A nude lunch is a lunchbox that does not leave any nasty plastics in school bins.

As well as going into the draw to win a weekly raffle prize, students and families who bring a nude lunch also get the satisfaction of knowing that they are doing their bit to reduce plastics and help our local environment. This is one of the many efforts by schools across my electorate. They are acting locally and thinking globally.

I congratulate the principal, the teachers, families and students at Ferncourt Public School on doing their bit to keep the inner west greener and cleaner. They are an example to us all of what we can do to try to make our environment cleaner.
