An exhibition opened at Bury Art Museum today displaying the winning posters produced by the pupils from schools taking part in James Frith’s #PlasticPledgeBury campaign.
Eight schools across Bury, Tottington and Ramsbottom are participating in the first year of the campaign, co-ordinated by local teacher Laura Chepner, which aims to raise awareness about plastic pollution and commit the schools, children and families to taking action to reduce single-use plastic.
Each school had its pupils design a poster and four winners were chosen from each. Their work will be displayed in Bury Art Museum for the next month.
James said: “I was bowled over by the effort put in by the children and their commitment to raising awareness and reducing single-use plastic waste. Each school has committed to taking some specific actions and I look forward to visiting each at the end of the year to see what progress they’ve made. I’d encourage local residents to check out the exhibition!”
