Youngsters putting planet first after valuable lesson

ECO-FRIENDLY youngsters learned a valuable life lesson when they took part in their very own Earth Day.

Warwick Preparatory School invited water company Severn Trent to teach pupils the importance of saving water.

The children spent a day learning about recycling, the environment, and climate change to encourage them to think about ways to help protect the planet.

Severn Trent – which supplies 1.8 billion litres of drinking water each day – asked pupils to think about how much water they use, and the impact small changes can have.

Examples provided by the team included turning off the tap when brushing teeth which can save nine litres, and that swapping baths for showers saves a further 44 litres of water.

Head of Humanities Laura Griggs said: “Our pupils have been able to learn more about our environment and hopefully they were able to see that they can do their own part in protecting our planet to make a more sustainable future for us all.”
