Little school, big difference!
Last term, children from Owlacombe and Middlecott classes were horrified by the amount of plastic packaging used for a box of rubbers; the box was made from plasticised cardboard and wrapped in plastic and inside each individual rubber was wrapped in plastic!!! They decided to take action and wrote to the supplier stating their disappointment and explained why plastic was so dangerous to the environment. They included with their letter all of the packaging they had removed! This week, we received a reply from the supplier who stated that following our letter, there will be no additional plastic used on rubbers. Fantastic news! What a success story!
