005Banchory Primary School bag 

This term Banchory Primary School P2/3 pupils have helped the BbC campaign in a number of ways, one of which being to produce their own cotton bags, designed by one of the pupils, Frances Sealy, aged seven. All the pupils had a go at creating a design and members of staff chose the winning design.

WH Smith’s and The Banchory Farmers’ Market added their support for the campaign this morning by inviting the children to sell the bags in the store and the market place. Before the end of the morning, they had sold out.

The Primary 2/3 Class teacher and school eco co-ordinator, Ruth MacDonald, said:

“The children have been really excited about this project.  I now have parents coming into school telling me they’ve been told off for using plastic bags in the supermarket.  So, the message is clearly getting through.  We hope people will bin plastic bags altogether.”
