School trash art

Trosnat School pupils created a piece of art from things we’d normally throw away like plastic bottles and lids, as part of the national celebration of climate action, the Great Big Green Week.

According to Recycle Now,  it is estimated that an average of 35.8 million plastic bottles are used EVERY DAY in the UK, but only 19.8 million are recycled each day. This means there are on average 16 million plastic bottles a day not making their way into the recycling bin.

Four local community groups collaborated to raise awareness of the extent of plastic waste. The Arts Society Portsdown has teamed up with the Havant Climate Alliance and Making Spacein Leigh Park to create the ‘trash sculpture’ with young people, on display in the Meridian Centre.
