Two pupils at an Ealing school are spreading the message to reduce, reuse and recycle in a bid to help future generations.

Rohan and Daniel, who both attend Year 6 at Clifton Lodge School in Ealing, have formed a Recycling Committee to encourage staff and pupils at the school to recycle more.

With the help of their geography teacher Katie Driscoll, the boys have arranged for recycling boxes to be placed in the playground and classrooms at the school, and will be holding assemblies to teach other pupils about the benefits of recycling. The boys are also planning to design posters encouraging recycling, and will be rewarding the class that recycles the most.

Rohan said: “Recycling is important and we need to reuse more of our waste at Clifton Lodge. We want people to think twice about binning waste, and recycle it instead to help future generations.”

The committee has devised a number of ways to help encourage recycling at the school, including organising a magazine swap to prevent the waste of comics and magazines and recycling notebooks, card and paper. They additionally plan to compost the waste from the kitchen and send old computer equipment and mobile phones to Third-World countries.

Clifton Lodge School is based in Mattock Lane, Ealing and is a preparatory school for boys and girls aged 4 to 13.
