Cathkin High students Bin It
Students at a Cambuslang school have upped their green credentials after taking part in the Bin It! initiative.
The youngsters, aged 11 to 13, welcomed actors to Cathkin High before the summer break when they performed a drama about the impact littering has on the environment.
Developed by The Wrigley Company, Bin it! is designed to explore the impact of littering, helping students to understand why it is so important to take personal responsibility for correct litter disposal.
Alex West, senior manager at Wrigley, said:“Bin it! has been an incredibly successful programme to date and we are delighted to have reached over 130,000 pupils across the UK over the last ten years. We hope that its success will continue to grow as we reach out to even more young people, reinforcing our messages around littering and urging children to take pride in and look after their local communities and environments.”
Research shows that 80 per cent of students who saw the show said they would now be sure to dispose of their chewing gum in the bin.
