Valley Primary School prides itself on ensuring we are an Eco School, looking after our environment, being Eco-friendly and ensuring we are energy efficient. We strive to teach all our children the importance of preserving both their local and global environment. The Eco-Warriors are children who have a love for the environment and have volunteered to help the staff and children at Valley become more environmentally friendly. They play an active role helping the school become more eco-friendly and they come up with new ideas on how to promote sustainability at home as well as at school.
Their main responsibilities include:
The Eco Warriors put out the following appeal in our drive to make a blanket for a homeless person.
URGENT APPEAL: EMPTY CRISP PACKETS NEEDED!
Did you know that currently the majority of crisp packets in the UK and worldwide are not recyclable so they have to go to landfill?
As ECO Warriors we have been offered the opportunity to help with a very exciting and rewarding recycling scheme. This will involve recycling used crisp packets and turning them into blankets for homeless people.
As you can imagine we will need lots of used crisp packets. We are hoping that over the Christmas holidays you eat lots of crisps and then send your empty crisp packets into school no later than the 9th January 2021. We will most likely continue this scheme and release further dates in the future, so please continue to collect after this date also.
It is very important that the crisp packets are clean and flattened. We hope you are just as excited as us and we thank you in advance for your help.
Valley ECO Warriors.
