This year our school’s Eco committee have set up a pen recycling programme. Each year millions of plastic pens, pencils and other writing utensils end up in a landfill site where they can take many years to decompose. By recycling the unwanted writing instruments we can help play our part in saving the environment and also raise some money for school charities. The greater the weight of the writing instruments we send away for recycling, the more money we can get for our charities- British Heart Foundation and Kayleigh’s Wee Stars.
Recycle your pens in your designated classroom box or in the school foyer.
Look at how much we’ve collected after just one month!
