AquaBuddy trio make a splash for recycling

Leafield Environmental has added three new AquaBuddies to its growing collection of EnviroBuddy novelty recycling bins.

PenguinBuddy, DolphinBuddy and FrogBuddy are the latest in line up of colourful characters designed especially to engage and encourage young children to clean up litter and recycle at home and at school. The EnviroBuddy collection, which includes planet-friendly SpaceBuddies and appealing Smiley Face Bins, were created to give schools a fun and interactive head start when teaching children about recycling.

On average primary schools generate 45kg of waste per pupil per academic year, mostly made up of food waste, paper and card. Much of this could be recycled and even generate a small income for schools.
371 primary and nursery schools have already adopted EnviroBuddies to add an important element of fun and personality to their recycling lessons.

Leafield's MD, Phil Maddox, said: "We are delighted the novelty bins are really helping to deliver the recycling message to children. Working with schools to develop this fun collection of EnviroBuddies has helped us create characters that children can really relate to in a fun learning environment."
