THE pupils of Coastlands CP School were delighted to have been able to spend their £50 competition prize win from the Port of Milford Haven on reusable beakers for Class 1 and 2 to use when drinking their daily milk.

All plastic milk bottles have been completely phased out from the school as one of the many actions the school has taken to reduce single-use plastic.

The prize was from the Plastic-Free Waterway initiative, which encouraged all local groups, businesses, and individuals to share their actions to reduce single-use plastics as well as further raise awareness of the impacts of single-use plastics, particularly in the marine environment.

Coastlands has done a lot of work on plastics such as considering whether plastics should be used in the Football World Cup through to water refill stations, annual litter picks and beach cleans.

The school council and Eco warriors have led discussions on how to help protect our precious seas and how to encourage others to make better choices.

Along with the £50 prize the pupils were given a book on “How to live plastic free” to further inspire their work.

Headteacher Sonja Groves said: “We are very proud of how passionate our pupils are about reducing the amount of plastic that we use.

"They are determined to make a difference in our community and feel that if we are to have any impact on the global plastic pollution of the oceans it has to begin with us here in Pembrokeshire."
