Students are running a social media campaign to raise awareness for the amount of plastic waste that ends up on the ground and then in our local environment. #plasticNOTfantastic students are writing to local community figures to post photos of a day without plastic, recycling plastic or picking up plastic from the environment. Students hope to initiate a plastic free day on the Weds where they can stand in solidarity with all the schools in the local community to raise awareness using the hastag They are going to run a waste collection competition within the school to reduce waste.
