Refill Poundbury

Damers Eco Crew (5 – 9 year olds) have been working with Litter Free Dorset Coast and Sea on their Refill Dorset Campaign. They launched Refill Poundbury in November in front of businesses and guests. They wrote a letter to these businesses asking them to sign their business up to the Campaign. They then visited the businesses that were interested to pitch to them why they should sign up to the scheme. Twenty businesses have sign up so far.
They also wrote their own Refill Rap explaining about the Campaign.  Eco Schools made it their Christmas message on their social media sites. Here is the rap
BBC Newsround came a few weeks ago to film the children talking about plastic pollution and the Refill Scheme. We are looking forward to seeing the children on National TV.
