Overwhelmed with design entries to One Bag Zero Waste
One Bag Zero Waste celebrates its latest milestone this week, with the submission of over 100 entries to our design competition. Unbelievable! Well done everyone involved.
Talented pupils from Queens Park and Wilberforce Primary Schools have come up with some inspired designs on an environmental -circular economy theme to be printed onto the reusable and recyclable One Bag made from recycled plastic.
The judging panel includes national government, local council and businesses and now we are opening up the decision to everyone further in asking you to participate.
The world is moving toward digital learning, business and socialising. So, please take a moment out of your day to be a part of a new, unique pilot project that the Environment Minister said should be “taken up by all authorities”. Be a part of this pilot that will soon be everywhere, One Bag Zero Waste “in every school, in every country”.
Through Facebook, become our “Fifth Judge” and have a say on which design from each school makes it onto the ground-breaking One Bag.
The winning designs will be revealed when the bags are produced, and a school and community event is organised. One winner from each school will be revealed as the bags are given out to families at the primary schools’ young people to encourage “reduce, reuse and recycling” in their local communities.
This is a living example of the circular economy in action. Become a part of this circle!
What will the One Bag Zero Waste pilot achieve?
Some projects focus on recycling, this campaign is different because at its heart, it aims to teach people about the economics and mechanics of recycling, while providing a real example of the circular economy, with economic incentives from local businesses.
The three aims of #OneBagZeroWaste pilot are to:
1.Educate 300 young people (and their households) in Queens Park on:
a. reducing plastic and litter within their communities
b. the mechanics and economics of recycling
c. the circular economy
2.Reduce plastic bag usage in Queens Park stores, by at least 20%.
3.Benefit local Queens Park businesses with increased footfall and return customers (when the catastrophe of COVID 19 allow).
