Eco Turtle Project
Delphis Eco are proud to announce the Eco Turtle Project which aims to aid education surrounding sustainability in schools. The positives that spin off from The Eco Turtle Project also include a fundraising revenue for the school, business skills learnt by pupils and the chance for school’s to uphold their environmental aims.
The Eco Turtle Project’s primary aim is to embed more sustainability education into the curriculum. By understanding the tangible aspects of sustainability, pupils will be able to see how everyday actions can affect our planet. From learning about recycling measures to the water cycle, environmental issues and sustainable production Delphis Eco are hoping to inspire the leaders of tomorrow.
From the initial designing of the logo and choosing the name of the Eco Turtle Project, a Year 4 class at Ashley C of E School have taken over the running of the inaugural Eco Turtle Project at their school. Pupils will sell three different products (Multi Purpose Cleaner, Anti-Bacterial Sanitiser and Washroom Cleaner) to their parents and all profits raised will be invested directly back into the school. The three products will be sold in concentrate form to reduce carbon footprint and parents are encouraged to reuse their trigger bottles time and again.
Ashley C of E School in Surrey is the first in the UK to pilot this exciting project. Headteacher Richard Dunne explains, “By offering Delphis Eco cleaning products to families of Ashley School, pupils will learn about the environmental benefits of recycling and sustainability. In addition, parents will have access to cost effective environmentally friendly cleaning products while the school generates a much needed revenue stream.”
