In reaction, innovative recycling specialists & sustainable consultants MyGroup & ReWorked have announced the launch of their education, recycling & rewards scheme SchoolCycled. – https://mygroupltd.com/schoolcycled/
The scheme aims to engage with primary schools across the UK – providing an expert educational package on a whole host of sustainability topics.
Participating schools will have access to the SchoolCycled bottle cap recycling scheme, whereby pupils collect plastic bottle lids in dedicated boxes within their school. Bottle caps can then be exchanged for Earth Points – the schools can exchange points for kids furniture, planters and play equipment made from the plastic they collect.
“Educating children from an early age about climate change and the importance of the environment is crucial for the future of the planet. Increasing the respect of the next generation for the earth will help reduce litter, pollution and waste – whilst inspiring the inventors & environmentalists of the future.” – says Izzie Glazzard, MyGroup.
MyGroup is seeking sponsorship to ensure the scheme is available to as many children as possible. You can support the campaign by sharing & donating to their GoFundMe campaign – https://gofund.me/0fec1cf1
