St Mary's College Winter Sleep Out

Around 60 year 12 students from St Mary's College in Adelaide braved the cold of an early spring night last month.

They were kept warm by just a cardboard box, a sleeping bag and food served on biodegradable plates donated by Eco Party Box.

The students were taking part in a Winter Sleep Out to raise awareness of and experience for the themselves the life of homelessness in South Australia.

The four year 12 students organising the event were focused on preparing a healthy and sustainable meal, representative of  the menu from the Vincentian homeless centre on Whitmore square, Adelaide, which the girls visited with their Religion class. They also had a goal of maintaining the theme of "ecological spirituality".

We were delighted to be able to donate our products to help raise awareness for a good cause.

Judging by the pictures they had a great time and we think they would make great role models for the cause.
