Cathkin High stu­dents Bin It

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
