Eco-friendly Warwick School pupils boycott single use plastic

ECO-WARRIORS at Warwick School are boycotting single-use plastic.

Staff and pupils at the school have committed to reducing landfill.

The ‘single use plastic boycott’ is lead by the ‘Green Team’ and includes swapping plastic lunch and sandwich packaging to paper, and using refillable water bottles.

Other changes in the school canteen include ditching single-use soup and pudding containers, and polystyrene containers for salads and jacket potatoes have been replaced with compostable ones.




Meanwhile at home, pupils are encouraged to use their own bags at the supermarket, choose loose fruit and vegetables, buy cans not bottles, and bring crisp packets from home to be recycled.

The school has been recognised as a recycling collection point for crisp packets which will be collected once 400 packets have been gathered.
