Creative ideas to reduce plastic waste


Fielding Primary School in West Ealing have introduced several initiatives to cut plastic waste at their fairs, which should inspire others organising similar events.


·        Refreshment stalls charged a pound deposit on reusable cups.

·        Pupils could buy branded water bottles and get access to unlimited tap water and squash.

·        Craft stalls upcycled fabric offcuts and made t-shirts into bags and hairbands.

·        A recycling reward stall encouraged children to bring rubbish and receive school house points, stickers and penny sweets. This also helped to educate them on what can be recycled as they didn’t get rewarded for non-recyclable rubbish.

·        For future events, the school’s looking to reduce waste further by bulk buying eg kegs of beer, cider and soft drinks served from large bottles.


Well done Fielding! For more on this go to:

Micro-fibres: animal impacts

Lab studies have found that microplastics can harm small aquatic organisms that eat them — including plankton,

a hugely important food source for aquatic organisms. These harms include decreased ability to feed and reproduce.

Zero Waste Shopping - how to do it


Zero-waste shopping can mean a number of things: buying articles designed to last. eg,

  • good-quality T-shirts that last for years rather than cheap ones that lose their shape after a couple of washes;

  • buying secondhand from charity shops, Ebay, etc,

  • obtaining goods from Freecycle, Freegle, etc;

  • repairing or repurposing items.

Check Local Pollution Levels


See how polluted your area is right now with this Live Air Quality Data:  


This map shows a pollution "nowcast", which is a service to show current pollution levels in detail across London in comparison with the Government's Air Pollution Index.


It is created by combining readings taken within the last hour and air pollution modelling in London.


 As you zoom into the map you will see which areas are currently experiencing higher pollution levels than others, usually those areas close to busy roads.


Also the BBC provide a “How polluted is your street” website where

you can enter a postcode:
