July 2021. How to make a home for Bees

Still image for this video
The last week of term was indeed busy but we managed to squeeze in making a house for bees out of recycled materials. Jessica and Penelope are here to show you how. Do let us know if you make one!

7th July 2021

 

Today we had a textiles collection with Bag2School who will re-use and recycle our unwanted items.

 

We raised £69.30 for the school.  Thank you to all parents and staff for participating.

 

 

 

 

TEXTILE FACTS* from Bag2School   * WRAP report - "valuing our clothes"

 

  • The annual footprints of a household’s new and existing clothing are equivalent to the weight of over 100 pairs of jeans, the water needed to fill over 1,000 bathtubs and the carbon emissions from driving an average modern car for 6000 miles.
     
  • An estimated £140 million worth (350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year.
     
  • Consumers spend £44 billion year on buying clothes – or around £1700 per household. If clothes stayed in active use for nine months longer, this could save £5 billion a year from the costs of resources used in clothing supply, laundry and disposal. Given that over 5% of the UK’s total annual carbon and water footprints result from clothing consumption, savings of this scale would be hugely significant not only in financial and commercial terms but also environmentally.
     
  • By educating children on the importance of recycling, the concept of textile recycling will become part of everyday life for generations to come.
