Bottling it up for new greenhouse at Acrefair

A RALLYING call has gone out for donations of empty bottles – in order to build a greenhouse.

The ambitious project is being carried out by pupils at Acrefair CP School as they learn about the value of sustainability and recycling.

They are halfway towards their target to get the number of bottles required to create the structure, which will provide them with further opportunities to learn about growing healthy food and the environment.

Teacher Becky Curtis said: “The school council and eco council are working together on this project, which will help the children learn valuable lessons about how to recycle, and be sustainable, but have fun at the same time.

“We are always appealing for more bottles because it is such a large project. To complete it we need to collect hundreds and hundreds of recycled two litre bottles to make the greenhouse, and we regularly send letters home to remind parents to bring us their empty bottles.

“We actually started the project last year but because we need so many empties, we may not even finish it until next year.”

Miss Curtis added: “I think we need around 1,200 bottles and have probably got around 600 or 700 so far.

“We will be getting the school council to write and send letters out to see if anyone can provide us with wood to go inside the bottles, and hopefully some of the parents will be able to help us out with that.

“With the greenhouse we are also looking to plant flowers and vegetables so each child can gain first-hand experience of sustainability and healthy eating.”
