Our 'green' New Year's Resolutions
26 January 2018
At the end of the Autumn Term all pupils were provided with EHS branded water bottles, kindly funded by the Parents' Association. Not only were these water bottles a lovely gift, they enable all girls to be able to hydrate without using large quantities of disposable plastic and paper cups.
The BBC programme ‘Blue Planet II’ has given all of us an insight into the issue of pollution and the damage that plastic is doing to our natural world. As a school we are very keen to encourage recycling but also aim to put into place initiatives to limit our use of disposable plastics, wherever possible. The start of the Spring Term has seen the re-election of our Green Representatives, who will support new and existing green initiatives and encourage their fellow students to get involved too.
