The e-activity is in the first phase of our
project, Mr. Ecological visits us,
To prepare in each of the schools Mr.
Ecological visit first we will conduct a
study to know the starting point. In this
case we will see what type and amount
of paper the school buys.
Know how much paper the school buys
and what kind of paper is.
Reflect on the use and consumption of
paper and its environmental implications.
The final product of our task will be to
show in a big poster the results
depending on the number of trees that
we have consumed during the school
year (one ton of white paper equals
approximately 7 to 10 trees), making
graphics, statistical data ...
Develop a Decalogue among all the
countries with the most voted proposals

GROUP 1: Study of the uses by the teachers.
GROUP 2: Study of the uses in the secretary´s
GROUP 3: Study of the uses by the students.
It is compulsory to ask the teachers, students and
person in charge of purchases at the Secretary´s

necessary to calculate how much paper the
school buys per person, if it prioritises recycling,
if copies are made on both sides, what kind of
papers are used in other areas of the school:
dining, extracurricular activities ...
The same groups are responsible for investigating
which one is the most appropriate
and some measures are proposed to reduce or
improve their use.
The activity is collaborative, as it is to see the
results in each School.
