Plastic Free Champion helps educate the next generation

Jun 21, 2019
Goplasticpallets.com has teamed up with Plastic Free Eastbourne campaigners and donated a selection of engaging recycling-themed books and teaching resources to every one of the 22 state primary schools in its home town of Eastbourne.

The Wild Tribe Heroes series of books, written by author Ellie Jackson, is based on true stories from her time living on Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The first book she wrote, Duffy’s Great Escape, tells the story of Duffy the sea turtle who, after a year of treatment for ingesting plastic, was released back into the ocean – something Ellie and her young family had the magical experience of witnessing first hand.

Emma Hall, Office Manager for Goplasticpallets.com recently attended Langney Primary School and officially presented the books to Head Teacher, Mr Ben Bowles and Science Green Team Leader, James Farrelly. David Stopp, a local singer/songwriter, entertained and inspired everyone with his campaigning song Journey of Love.

Emma said: “We’re delighted to be able to support Plastic Free Eastbourne with this initiative. The books we have donated all carry a very important message. We hope they help inspire the next generation to take responsibility for the single-use plastic items they use and make sure they are recycled in a sustainable way.”
