Wellesley Park pupils help Somerset go green
10:40am Wednesday 11th December 2013 in News
THREE Wellesley Park Primary School pupils have proved their powers of persuasion by being picked as winners in a contest to help families recycle food waste.
Cara Schultz, aged eight, Lewis Bullock, nine, and Poppy Blight, ten, were among thousands of children from across the county who were invited to design posters promoting recycling through Somerset's new Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facility.
The best posters won green prizes for each pupil's class and winning designs will feature in a Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) publicity campaign to prompt families to recycle more.
Steve Read, SWP managing director, said: “Colourful, creative and committed to recycling; these posters show that the next generation is taking an inspiring lead to help everyone in Somerset avoid landfill and generate clean, green power.
“They want each family to put every scrap of unavoidable food waste into their kerbside container to feed the AD facility's burping bacteria.”
