A group of Preparatory School eco warriors have been praised for their efforts in a post-Christmas recycling project.
The eco committee members at Rydal Penrhos, together with Year 6 pupils, have been busy collecting Christmas cards since the start of term last week, which will be recycled through conservation charity the Woodland Trust.
Around 1,440 cards have been donated so far thanks to the hard work of the group’s members and teacher Julie Woodthorpe, who said: “We had a fantastic response to this from pupils, staff and parents, and on behalf of our Eco Committee I would like to thank anyone who brought Christmas cards in for recycling.”
This is the latest in a long line of initiatives by the group, who encouraged pupils to bring in just one card over the festive period for the whole class to save on paper.
They also provided the RSPCA’s Bryn-y-Maen centre in Colwyn Bay with a donation of blankets and tasty treats for rescued animals last year.
The Woodland Trust now has more than 500,000 in more than 1,000 sites all over the UK, and their work includes supporting wildlife, challenging climate change, plating more trees and protecting vulnerable woods.
