Five students with a passion for the environment have been recruited as Waste Warriors, to lead a sustainability mission at three Australian schools. Each week the Waste Warriors progress their major mission to reduce waste in all its forms whilst being thrown weekly surprise challenges.
Five passionate Waste Warriors are set sustainability challenges and lead the charge to turn things around at their schools.
Expert help arrives to help the Waste Warriors develop their vege patch and build a solar-powered irrigation system, with school canteen success for another Warrior.
Innovative methods are used to build a solar powered irrigation system cheaply and in Hobart, the Waste Warriors clean the school with natural cleaning products.
An entertaining robot that assesses and processes recyclables arrives at a school and our Waste Warriors are set challenges to support local native wildlife.
Setbacks, pickles and successes give all of the Waste Warriors a chance to prove their growing skills and determination with their missions.
