Newsround: Call for ban on single use plastic bottles at school after half-term

Dear Elmhurst community,

 

As you probably know, Elmhurst has been working on the Super Citizen project on how to improve the lives of others and the environment. As part of the school council, we have spoken a lot about the problem of plastic pollution and its impact on the planet. This is something that we can all act on very easily at school.

 

We have proposed to the school council to have a ban on single-use plastic bottles. They are a major problem because it is a waste of energy to make them when they are only used once. 

 

Another problem with plastic pollution is that it can cause terrible damage to wildlife, especially in the oceans where they can endanger species further. So it is not just about us humans, it is also other living things that get affected by plastic.

 

Finally, when some children throw their plastic bottles away, they think that it gets recycled but it is very hard to recycle because it releases a lot of gasses into the atmosphere.  So when you or your child puts something that is plastic in the bin, just think what that piece could do to the world.

 

After half-term please bring in bottles that can be reused for a long time.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joshua Allen (Head boy) 

School Council
