Clevedon Learning Trust

Plastic Free

Some 1,300 students Clevedon School are having a drinking water revolution by getting rid of 66,000 water bottles a year.

The school will become one of the most pioneering in Britain by ridding their premises of all plastic water bottles and replacing it with healthy and plastic-free water supplied by Bristol Water.

The inspirational Clevedon School is now to do projects with Bristol Water to install state-of-the-art water fountains accessible by all students.

The new student school teams want to answer the call from Sir David Attenborough and become a Plastic-Free-School.

They are now on a drive to rid the school of ‘disposable’ plastic, which is causing eight million tonnes of it is ending up in the oceans every year, killing already-endangered marine life and even ending up in the food chain. 

Head of School Jim Smith said: “We are absolutely delighted to be doing this project with Bristol Water. Our students are all on board and excited to be doing our bit to save the planet.”

Erik Sebok of Bristol Water said: “'We are delighted to work on this project with Clevedon School; reducing plastic waste is something that we are extremely passionate about. This new installation adds to our fountain programme, which has two fountains in Bristol and more to come over the next few years.“
