Becket Primary School, in Tavistock Road, has undertaken a whole school project tackling the issue, with pupils doing litter picks 
and analysing data through charts and percentages based on their findings.

Youngsters looked at single-use plastic in their homes and lunchboxes, and made eco-bricks to try to reuse the plastics, while years one and two focussed on reusing plastic by creating garments and art with plastic materials.

Years three and four classes looked at the harm plastics are causing for marine life and what could be done to try and cut down on plastic use.

Students in years five and six thought more about the scale of the problem and have even written to different supermarkets and companies to try to persuade them to use alternative packaging.
