MINI AMBASSADORS INVOLVEMENT WITH RHIWBINA AGAINST PLASTIC (RAP) CAMPAIGN
We are the younger children in the school (Reception to Year 3) supporting the ECO Committee to achieve the ECO School Platinum Award.
After our successful evening where we shared with the community our project ideas, we would now like to announce the two initiatives that our families can become involved with.
The children in year 1 and year 2 will be collecting single use crisp and biscuit wrappers from their lunchboxes. The Mini-Ambassadors (MA) will then sort them and they will be sent freepost back to the manufacturers with letters from the children asking about how they can make their products more ECO Friendly. This is part of a national campaign (Anna McMorrin -Cardiff North MP will be supporting us in this).
As a family you may wish to collect and send your own wrappers to the following:
including Doritos + Snack a Jacks
Consumer Services Department
Walkers Snack Foods
FREEPOST LE4 918
Leicester LE4 5ZY
c/o Tayto Group Limited
including Skips + Mc Coys + Hula Hoops
FREEPOST KP SNACKS
including biscuits (of course) + Penguin Bars + Club etc
McVities Consumer Services
including Mars Bars, Snickers, Twix etc
FREEPOST Mars Consumer Care
2) PLASTIC FANTASTIC FREE FRIDAY!
This is a school based initiative to encourage the children, staff and parents to have as little single use plastic waste as possible in their lunchboxes.
The children can then take pictures of their lunchboxes, which we can add onto our website as part of the wider community project.
The Mini-Ambassadors will be taking an assembly on Tuesday 1st May.
