Objective 1: Form an Action Group
Meet our 'Plastic Free Action Group.' These children will play a very important role in ensuring that we meet all of the objectives required towards to become a Plastic Free School.

We held a quick fire clean-up of our local area to identify the sources of litter.
Objective 3: Challenging Government
We wrote to our local MP Mr Tahir Ali to raise with him the issue of littering and inadequate waste disposal facilities in the Sparkhill area.
This was his response...
Objective 4: Challenging Industry
As a result of our 'Trash Mob' findings, we selected a number of brands to contact. We wrote letters to Coca Cola, Mountain Dew and Walkers to ask them to reduce their use of plastic packaging. We will await their response.
