A MOLD book shop has launched a competition to get young people involved in making a difference when it comes to tackling problem plastics in their town.

Mold Bookshop, based on High Street, has launched a fun poster design competition aimed at school children aged between seven and 11 with the theme of single-use plastic reduction.

Caroline Johnson, the shop owner, said: “When David Attenborough highlighted the problems that plastics are causing, particularly in our oceans, I decided to hold a competition to encourage people to think twice about how much plastic they use and how they dispose of it.

“The response has been amazing especially from the younger generation, which gives us hope for the future.”

The entries will be judged by Delyn’s AM Hannah Blythyn, and the winning poster will be displayed in various locations throughout the town.

The Leader previously reported that residents in Mold held a public meeting

with the aim of reducing the town’s amount of single-use plastic waste, coming up with creative ways to reuse plastic products and encouraging people to recycle more


The winner will receive a copy of the book ‘Plastic: Past, Present and Future’ by Eun Ju Kim as well as a £10 book token.

Two runners up will be presented with a £5 book token each.

Entries should be submitted to the shop on one side of A4 paper with your child’s name, age, address and contact information as well as the signature of a parent or guardian.

The competition is open until Saturday, June 29.
