Darren encourages schools to teach plastic awareness

Darren Jones, MP for Bristol North West, has written to all Primary schools in Bristol North West encouraging them to take part in a free scheme which teaches pupils in-depth knowledge of plastic waste and how to reduce it but also offers schools the chance to win up to £20,000 for a sustainability project.

Darren said:

” Today, I have contacted all 29 primary schools in Bristol North West, inviting them to take part in Asda’s Plastic Waste lesson plan and competition.

As we all know, plastic waste is a huge issue, both in the UK and globally. Tackling this problem is crucial and I will continue to press for action to reduce plastic pollution – that includes challenging supermarkets to use more recycled materials and reduce their own plastic waste. However, from the perspective of working with young people, I am pleased to see that Asda are looking to inspire the next generation to live sustainably and protect our planet, through an exciting ‘Plastic Mission’ challenge, which finishes with a poster competition, where schools can win up to £20,000 for a sustainability project.

The deadline for entries into the poster competition is 24th July, I urge all schools to get involved”!
