Big Idea

Put a stop to Plastic

Put a stop to Plastic

Nailsea School

Waste

"We have chosen it because we want to stop using waste plastic crisp packets and to make a reusable crisp dispenser we will sell it in school and raise our funds before we take it to our shops, More than two million pieces of litter are dropped in the UK every day. The cost to the taxpayers for street cleaning is over £1 billion a year. Additionally, on average 4 billion packets are thrown away each year which 50% go into the ocean harming any wildlife putting lives in dangerous conditions."

"Our big idea is to use fully recyclable tub wear pots instead of plastic wrappers. And to put a crisp dispenser machine which will have different Flavors.  We are going to start off with placing it in our school and then if it goes well, we will put it in shops."

"Our vision is to get every store in Somerset to have our product and for it to be used in an environmentally friendly way.  It will help people to get out of bad habits in using plastic.  It will start at our school. Hopefully it will be very popular as our school currently doesn’t sell crisps and so students have to bring them from home."
