Hi Timmy. I did contact my son's local school teacher who seemed to really like the idea of the challenge. But she was more interested in conducting the challenge internally between the students within the school and set-up prizes for kids who could could collect and recycle the most E-waste. She did have some questions and sounded a little sceptical about advancing the the phase of intiating the challenge, she asked about where all the E-waste would go and who would collect it all etc. I will keep you posted on the outcome.

Hi Judith, I like the sound of your idea. I am heavily involved in cereal manufacturing and am always looking at ways to off set the rising cost of inflation and also looking into environmental / recycling opportunities in our facility. I think with some products this would work quiet well but I am just a little sceptical with tracability in the event of a re-call and also out of date product going out to customers. Also allergen products could pose as an issue. In saying all of this I really do think this idea is a great idea, I am in Australia (Sydney) we dont have anything like this here.

Great idea. Starting early with our children and getting them on the right track of recyling. Healthy competition between some rival schools will also drive some great results. Really like the idea and think schools in Sydney and across Australia would benefit from this.
