With support from Hubbub, and in collaboration with TK Maxx and Homesense, we are working on an exciting project called Plastic Pioneers with Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School in Meanwood.

Cardinal Heenan are one of 12 trail blazing schools to have joined Plastic Pioneers which encourages students and staff to re-think school life with less single-use plastic.

We’ve been working with a group of students at the school, who’ve formed a Plastic Pioneers lunchtime group to take a lead on reducing the amount of single-use plastic.

We helped them to come up with an action plan - and they've done a range of things already, including encouraging students to bring water bottles to school, to be topped up at water fountains - rather than buying bottles of water.

They’ve also been working with the school’s caterers to reduce the amount of single-use plastic that’s available in the canteen, and organised a litter pick in their local community.

To help improve people’s understanding of the issues, and to inspire people to do more, they invited artists and inspirational speakers into school.

We'll continue to work with Cardinal Heenan during 2020 - and we’d also like to do more work in the future with schools in Leeds.

PLEASE GET IN TOUCH if you'd like to work with us on this exciting project.
