We have loved working on a plastic recycling project for client Barratt David Wilson who has partnered with Powerday to launch an exciting and educational campaign with schools at its neighbouring developments. The innovative campaign was launched to highlight Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ commitment to sustainability and to highlight the fact that it recycles 95% of its onsite waste, instead of it ending up in landfill.

As part of Barratt Homes’ ongoing Education Programme five schools across Southern Counties, Kent and  London have now each been given a skip to fill with any unwanted hard plastics from home and school to recycle. The skips will be taken away and depending on their collection will be replaced with a lovely piece of furniture made from recycled plastic for their school playground.

To launch the campaign, Simon Little from Powerday visited Victor Seymour Infants School in Sutton on Monday and introduced the skip to the pupils who were all well-armed with their plastics to be recycled.

Good luck to all schools taking part in this fantastic project which highlights the importance of recycling plastic – we look forward to revisiting for photos once the skips are full!
