Message in a Bottle Top Campaign – Year 2
Following its huge success in 2021, the UK’s leading brand of sustainable composite decking and cladding, Composite Prime has launched it’s school recycling programme, ‘Message in a Bottle Top’.
It’s never too early to start teaching children about the environment. Our nationwide Message in a Bottle Top recycling initiative shares an inspiring and important message for pupils aged 5-11 about turning trash into treasure.
Working alongside We are Futures, who run The National Schools Partnership (NSP), Our campaign inspires key stage one and two pupils, from participating schools, to collect and repurpose their own bottle tops into thought-provoking art murals and sculptures; showcasing the creatures they’d love to protect from plastic pollution.
Following Composite Prime’s example, pupils discover how to see the treasure in the waste we produce.
Director, Charles Taylor said: “With around eight million tons of plastic polluting the earth’s oceans every year, the race to protect marine life is growing more urgent every day. Playing our part in tackling this challenge is one of the key priorities for Composite Prime.
“Our Message in a Bottle Top campaign has been created specifically to target younger generations to ensure Composite Prime is doing its part in educating children to recycle. This is absolutely essential for us to continue diverting thousands of tons of discarded plastic from oceans and landfills every year.”
“With everything from giant jellyfish to a great white shark, the sculptures created by schools up and down the country were incredibly creative and showcased a huge amount of plastic waste. The response to the 2021 campaign was incredible, it saw 785 schools, 845 teachers, 110,432 children and 194,360 parents collect over 90,000 bottle tops.”
As students complete the challenges their families can also be in with a chance of winning a £10 Amazon voucher by sharing a photograph with their bottle top collection on social media using the hashtag #messageinabottletop
The winner of the competition will receive a playground makeover for their school worth up to £5,000
The competition closes on Friday 20th May 2022!
