Buxton students win prizes for recycling campaign

Students from Buxton Community College have won prizes for a recycling competition organised by mineral water brand Buxton and plastics waste charity Recoup

There were ten winners who designed posters and slogans to encourage fellow pupils, staff and the community to recycle more.

The two first-prize posters were chosen because of their “colourful, artistic designs and clear messaging”. One winning poster will be featured in local schools and the other will be on display at key locations around Buxton.

The winning slogan – ‘Have the bottle to recycle’ – will be printed onto car stickers. Pat Jenner, Mayor of High Peak Borough Council, attended the presentation.

Luke Cox, Recoup Project Officer, said: “Recycling one plastic bottle saves enough energy to run a 60 watt light bulb for six hours. By working so closely with schools, such as Buxton Community School, to install recycling bins on site, we are already seeing an increase in recycling levels – it’s just become a daily habit for staff and students alike.”

Sian Chapman, corporate communications manager at Nestlé Waters, which owns the Buxton water brand, added: “Our partnership with Recoup is the perfect way for us to spread our enthusiasm for the environment and sustainability, giving us the chance to play an active part in supporting our local community to care for the environment in which we all live and work.”

All prize winners received a goody bag from Buxton natural mineral water, the second prize winners received £50 worth of high street vouchers and the first prize winners received £100 worth of high street vouchers.

The winners

School Posters: First prize – Katie Gill (aged 14 years), second prize – India Godard (aged 12 years), third prize – Chloe Lee (aged 12 years). An extra entry by Kelly McLean (aged 13 years) was also chosen as a winner because of its clear and simple design and strong recycling message.

Street Posters: First prize – Sophie Bennett (aged 13 years), second prize – Freya Insoll (aged 14 years), third prize – Lili Belle McLeish (aged 13 years).

Slogan Design: First prize – Freya Insoll (aged 14 years), second prize – Scott Gregory (aged 14 years), third prize – Josh Mikielewicz (aged 14 years).
