The Russell School launches plastic campaign

Zac Goldsmith MP addressed the assembly at the Russell School on 21 June, and heard directly from the pupils about their campaign to reduce plastic waste at the school.

Year 3 students at the school had sent almost 1,500 plastic straws to Zac to illustrate the sheer quantity of waste unwittingly generated by schools. The students also sent Zac hand-drawn plans for milk cartons that do not require the use of straws along with a letter they asked Zac to hand to Prime Minister Theresa May.

Zac Goldsmith said: “It was exhilarating to see the passion of Russell school pupils about the environment, and to hear about their plans to campaign against plastic pollution. I took their letter and drawings to the Prime Minister, and have invited Year 3 to Parliament for a tour.”Russell
