Dear SRC

Dear SRC, My name is Samantha and I am in Year 7 at AGS. As a fellow Year 7 student, I am worried about the growth of litter in our high standing school. I hope you take into consideration of my idea as I feel it will help with the exceeding amount of rubbish piling up.
The growing rubbish is causing destruction around our area and is ruining our school environment. I hope to persuade the many students of our school to be responsible and environmentally friendly. My campaign will consist of painting the rubbish bins a basketball hoop which therefore will make the students WANT to throw their rubbish in the bin. I have seen countless people throwing their rubbish as a basketball so it is already a growing popularity. It will reduce the rubbish being thrown around and is a new and fun way.
To extend on this idea I even thought about having a competition to see who can pick up the most rubbish, the winner gets to throw them all in the bin and if they get all of them in they get a prize. Even using a slogan like ‘BIN it to WIN it’ can create enthusiasm and eagerness to participate in the cause. Also putting up colourful posters will attract attention and be a reminder to put your rubbish in the bin.
Rubbish has increased enormously, mainly due to people unaware of the damage it has done.
