Crisp packet recycling scheme
Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme
**Eco News*** School is now collecting crisp packets for recycling as part of a pilot scheme run by Walkers/PepsiCo in collaboration with Brakes.
Until now crisp packets have been very difficult to recycle. The collected crisps packets will be shredded into plastic pellets and then transformed into park benches, watering cans and cool bags.
Crisp packet collection boxes are located outside the toilets in KS1 and KS2. Any brand of crisp is welcome, although please no popcorn packets. Collecting will end on 22nd November.
As a further incentive to reduce landfill, Walkers/PepsiCo are offering to donate £10,000 to the charity Meals and More if 36,000 crisp packets are collected by the end of 2019.
We are excited to take part in this environmentally friendly initiative. However, school is not encouraging crisps to be brought in for packed lunches or for families to eat more crisps! We are simply collecting packets that would otherwise be sent to landfill.
Thank you for your support and thank you to Mrs Worsley from Brakes for asking us to take part,
from the Eco Team ��
