After a push to be more environmentally friendly, a Bridgnorth nursery has been awarded plastic free status. The Little Green House is the first nursery in Shropshire to have achieved the award as a result of successfully eliminating single-use plastics in its day-to-day operation.
The Plastic Free School Award is a campaign by marine conservation charity Surfers Against Sewage, which works with communities to protect oceans, beaches and marine life.
As part of their campaign, children identified the single-use plastics used in the nursery and devised solutions for reducing their use. The children also went on a litter pick and have been sharing their new knowledge with their families and friends. Through these projects they have learnt about the significance of the environment and how recycling or reusing items can be beneficial.
