GREEN FOR GO


Environmental credentials are becoming more important when it comes to our purchasing decisions, but eco-friendly products needn’t cost more, discovers Emma Griffin


Reusable branded cups


Put the mantra of ‘reuse, reduce and recycle’ into practice at coffee mornings and school fairs with school-branded reusable cups. Suitable for hot or cold drinks and with over ten mug and lid colours to choose from, PTA Heroes’ cups can match most crest or uniform colours. There is scope for adding a ‘please return’ message on each cup too, if you’re using them at events. Alternatively, consider selling them as a fundraising item to parents. ptaheroes.co.uk ‘As a school set not only in an area of outstanding natural beauty but also a World Heritage Site, we are very aware of how important it is to protect the natural environment. For our welcome tea and cake morning for new intake parents, we wanted to get reusable cups that could be personalised and would be durable enough for catering dishwashers. PTA Heroes allowed us to design the cups to include “property of...” and “please return” statements, so people wouldn’t think we were giving them away.’ Kay Sherman, Friends of School chair, Bere Alston Primary Academy, Yelverton, Devon (149 pupils)

Recycled plastic trails Replacing or maintaining tired wooden play


Cost based on quantity, plus delivery


equipment can be expensive and time- consuming. However, The Hideout House Company has launched a range of trim-trail play equipment made from recycled plastic rather than the more traditionally used round timber posts. Recycled plastic is virtually maintenance- free, lasts five times longer than timber on average, and doesn’t rot, splinter or crack. Manufactured from recycled plastic cartons, The Hideout House range includes play towers, play boats, mud kitchens and water tables. Safety surfacing made of recycled bonded rubber mulch can also be supplied. hideouthouse.com ‘The school’s old play equipment had reached the end of safe use. The wood had rotted in places and split in others. However, we were concerned that plastic wasn’t environmentally friendly. So we were pleased to find that The Hideout House Company manufactured their equipment from recycled plastic, which would last a long time. The children were really excited to think that the new trim trail had once been milk cartons. Now that the equipment is installed it looks sturdy and quite rustic in our play area. The children love it and we expect to get many years of use from it.’ Sharon Mason, headteacher, St Chad’s Catholic Primary, Dudley (209 pupils)
