Carn Brea have just discovered that our red noses can be recycled!
The polyurethane foam noses can be taken to Sainsbury’s locations across the country and will be sent to the Northamptonshire factory of leading UK carpet underlay manufacturer Ball & Young where they will be recycled into its award-winning Cloud 9 range.
The children were very excited to hear this and Lottie and Rosie have suggested that if you would like to bring noses back into school they would be happy to take them down to Sainsbury to be recycle.
It then got us to thinking about ways to reuse the noses and an idea we have had is that we could save the noses for Remembrance day where we can cut the foam into petals and make poppies.
If you would like to recycle or reuse your noses please bring them into school over the next 7 days and Carn Brea class will be happy to put them to good use.
Next year, we are having a real focus on environmental issues, including single use plastics .. watch this space
