Youngsters from Droitwich's St Peter's School making 'ecobricks' to build a better future

YOUNGSTERS from St Peter’s C of E Academy in Droitwich are helping to build a cleaner future by making ecobricks.

The children have been saving plastic bottles and then filling them with unrecyclable plastic, such as bags, straws and crisp packets.

Ecobricking is an easy way to help save the amount of plastic waste which is going to landfill and the filled bottles can then be used to make indoor and outdoor furniture, planters, walls and other structures.

St Peter’s has produced more than 200 bottles which will be taken to the Worcester drop-off point where they will be distributed for community projects.

Yvonne Moore, the school’s eco-council leader, said: “This has been a fantastic project for the whole school to get behind.

“There is a lot of waste left after Christmas and this is a great way to make better use of unrecyclable plastics and to help look after the world we live in.”
