Wonderful waste-free woodlands! Suffolk Show
This year’s theme at the Suffolk show was all about keeping the woodlands, countryside and streets of Suffolk litter and plastic free and making sure that we put our waste in the right place so it doesn’t end up harming our wildlife and environment!
Schools and groups from all over Suffolk did a fantastic job of making amazing artwork using reused and recycled materials for our display, so it should be another great year for Suffolk recycles!
You can see some of the artwork, and pictures from the Suffolk show on out online gallery.
There was lots to do including meeting our giant drainpipe spider (eek!) and having a pow-wow round our up-cycled toadstool tables!
There was a pedal powered Scalextric so you can use the energy you make to power a racing car.
There was lots of fun and games to be had, including making a CD owl, playing the litter pick game, finding out how food savvy you are and learning about what you can do to reduce, reuse and recycle your waste. Our merry band of master compost volunteers was on show to give composting advice too.
