Bamboo Fruit Cups

The Junior School Eco Committee are very pleased to announce that we have introduced new fruit cups at lunch time in the St George’s Centre. Over the last year, we have worked with Mrs Imlah to find an eco-friendly alternative to the single-use plastic cups which get thrown away.

These little cups feel similar to plastic, but are actually made from bamboo! The great thing about them is that they are strong and can be washed and re-used over and over again. The bamboo cups have now replaced our single-use plastic cups and are used every day at lunch by girls and staff. This will dramatically help to reduce the amount of plastic waste that we have each day.

We are continuously looking for ways in which we can improve, and this is a huge step closer to making our school a greener place.
