HOW OUR MOVEMENT STARTED:
Recently we have noticed that a lot of young people don't take a drink to school. Dehydration can have many damaging effects on a young persons health and productivity.
With that being said - those who do take drinks too school, use PLASTIC bottles! Climate Change is a massive issue and something we feel really passionate about changing. With plastic being a massive part of environmental issues we want to try and educate young people about the use of plastic and how it effects our planet. It has been estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish!
We would like to be able to give ALL young people who attend our local clubs such as; Breakfast Club, Youth café and youth Club a FREE REUSABLE bottle made from Stainless Steal. This will help reduce plastic waste, which will help protect wildlife, keep our air clean and keep our planet going. It will also encourage young people to drink more and stay hydrated. At HYP we are also part of Re-fill Cornwall which enables the public to come and fill up their water bottles for free! There are also many restaurants and businesses locally to the area that are also part of this scheme.
We want young people to understand the importance of small changes and the significant difference this can make, not only to the environment but also too their health and engagement in school.
If we can get 100 young people a reusable plastic bottle this will help reduce the plastic consumption in Cornwall, aid better education around Climate Change and help keep young people hydrated which will lead to better concentration and productivity.
HOW YOU CAN HELP US:
£340.00 will enable us to buy 100 bottles and also educate young people about these matters!
Help us to raise this money and start taking action towards being - Plastic FREE!
If everyone who reads this gave us a £1 we would be on our way to a great change. If you can't spear and money PLEASE SHARE our project so as many people see this as possible!
At HYP we understand the importance of looking after ourselves and the planet. For those who don’t know about our work we are already energising our young people by providing free breakfast every week before school, we are also planting trees and have a vegetable patch at the centre. We are committed to helping the environment as well as enabling our young people to grow – this is another chance for us to achieve both. Hopefully with your help we can!!
