TDSB EcoSchools


We have an EcoSchools Team!

Our team members are dedicated to making Iroquois a more environmentally sustainable space. Our team is open to students in Grades 4-6, however some primary classes will be invited to help us with specific projects this school year. Students meet at lunch time.

We have a special variety of committees such as Litterless Lunch, Energy, Morning Announcements/Website, Assembly, and the Waste committee. In the fall, we are focusing on waste reduction, and in the spring, we are focusing on energy usage. We are encouraging all students to bring a litterless lunch to school all year long!

Congratulations to our inaugural Eco Art Contest participants! We loved seeing your use of recyclable materials in a creative manner! Thank you for your efforts!





  • Energy: Turn off the lights when you leave the room
  • Energy: Unplug or power down appliances or devices when you are not using them
  • Waste/Energy: Recycle electronics, chemicals like paint and batteries correctly
  • Waste: Sort your waste correctly by using the correct bin
  • Waste: Use G.O.O.S. paper as much as possible
  • Waste: Use less single-use plastic
  • Waste: Bring a litterless lunch every day
  • Waste: Bring a reusable waterbottle
  • Waste: Donate used clothing to charities in need (instead of putting in the garbage)
