Eco Shop

Our Eco club has been successful in securing a place on a pilot scheme called Pupils Profit. Backed by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority,  we received an initial grant of £200 to help support the purchase of our initial stock and training. 

Pupils Profit is a fantastic scheme which promotes using less plastic by recycling empty containers and using them to refill with products such as body wash, washing up liquid and hand wash . As the children are integral to the business, their enthusiasm helps encourage the adults to want to purchase items, helping to reduce plastic waste. 

As we go through the programme, the children complete modules. The work we are doing educates the children on teamwork, communication, problem solving, creativity, aiming high, leadership and teamwork to name a few.  It provides a sequenced programme that builds on their prior learning and helps them develop skills for their future. 

Module 1 

Business Operations. What to call the business, where it will be located, when it should open and how to keep it safe. 

 

Our Business will be called Woody's Eco Express!

Market Research. This is a way of checking there is a need for the business and gaining public opinion. We sent out a questionnaire on Parenthub which gained 25 responses and the children spoke to teachers and staff to gain their opinions.

Dear Woody's Eco Express,
Many congratulations on the launch of Woody’s Eco Express.  I can see you’ve done a fantastic job, and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work that went into making the launch such a great success - it sounds like parents and staff were delighted. 
 
Looking at your sales you’ve saved 16 containers from waste forever!!   If all 20,000 primary schools in the UK had done what you’ve done, we would have saved 320,000 containers from waste in one day - WOW that’s a lot less plastic pollution!    
 
Best wishes, 
 
Lizzie
