Yesterday Room 3 children braved the cold, and distributed pamplets around Halcombe. (And we picked up litter on the way).
We were shocked to learn that plastic can take up to 1000 years to break down! A lot of plastic ends up in waterways which flow to the oceans. Thousands of sea birds and marine life are killed every year by getting caught in plastic or eating it.
We put these facts into a pamplet and gave suggestions of how to re-use plastic bags.
