Beeswax wrappers invented by YRE school in New Zealand
Students from Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery school who developed and produced lunch wrappers made from beeswax went to their city’s university to share their ideas and products to encourage others to think about how they can make the packaging in their lunches more sustainable. The university is considering using and promoting their products to their students. Another local school which was not involved in YRE this year heard about this initiative and has now introduced a sustainable lunch box programme at their school. This is a great example of how a great idea can spread throughout a community and grow.
