Junior World team up with TerraCycle to help reduce plastic waste from bread bags and crisp packets

The following blog update comes from Jayne Macintosh at Junior World in Nairn: 

Joining up with Terracycle at the end of last year we have been increasing our awareness of recycling and everyone has been participating with the Walkers Crisp Packet Initiative and we have so far collected over 1000 crisp packets.

Last week we were the first registered collection point in the Highlands for “bread bags” a new initiative set up by Hovis. We have joined forces with the local Co-op stores in Nairn, who have agreed to be collection points and we are excited to be organising recycling advisory afternoons at the local Co-op stores in the very near future.

All recycled produce will be sent to TerraCycle where eventually they will be transformed into benches, watering cans etc.
