SEAI One Good Idea Competition

SEAI One Good Idea Competition

Offaly County Council is proud to show two of its green schools tackling the issue of single use plastic in their schools. They entered in SEAI’s One Good Idea Competition and were selected for the Regional Finals in Limerick on 25th February.

A team of 6th class students from St Rynaghs National School, Banagher were runners up in the competition. They researched the harmful effects of single use plastics and promoted the switch to reusable bottles instead.  Their video is available to view on the St Rynaghs National School twitter page https://twitter.com/StRynaghsNS

Geashill National School came up with the initiative “BottleBusters”. They want to eliminate single use plastic in their school and have now introduced aluminium drinking bottles for all the pupils and teachers. See their cool video here https://vimeo.com/388262292

Well done to all involved.
