A huge round of applause
Congratulations to all the schools who have been selected to participate in our community composting competition! We can’t wait to get the competition started and see what everyone discovers. And remember, the winner receives £3,000 to be used towards an eco-initiative at their school.
How does it work?
During the competition, our Waste Warrior champions (winning school) will be picked based on the amount of waste added to their compost heap, measured by diary entries. Classes will be asked to keep a tally to submit and an image of their compost heaps for us to assess.
At the Modern Milkman, we’re passionate about reducing waste and want to help future generations learn the importance of sustainable acts like composting. Composting is a great way to get rid of waste without harming the planet and creates a new material that can be used in a lot of valuable ways! We want to help turn your bins to blooms.
We can’t wait for the competition to begin – good luck to everyone involved!
