Today the Climate action team officially launched The Roseland’s Plastic Free campaign with two inspiring whole school assemblies. The project will now be rolled out across our feeder Primaries on the Roseland.

For the whole week we are running a ‘Plastic Amnesty’ where we are asking students to dispose of all of their single use plastic waste in the specially provided bins around the school site. At the end of each school day, the plastic is transferred to single transparent box in the main hall. By the end of the week this will be a very visual example of the amount of plastic we are currently producing, the majority of which ends in landfill, or even worse risks escaping into the environment.

The CAT team will then analyse the waste and come up with whole school strategies to permanently reduce our reliance and disposal of single use plastics.

After half term, the Climate Action Team will be launching our Plastic School Initiative in collaboration with SAS. The aim is to reduce the amount of single use plastic being used, processed and disposed of on the school site.Plastic Free Schools is a positive, investigative, action-packed vision for stopping plastic pollution at source. The programme will empower pupils to not only tackle unnecessary single-use plastics in school but inspire Industry and Government to make positive strategic steps in the same direction.
