The Eco Turtle Project

The Eco Turtle Project is a fun and exciting sustainability programme that engages pupils, parents and schools. 

 

The Eco Turtle Project was developed with a group of 8 year old school children from Ashley C of E School Primary School. They created the logo design and chose the project name. Their aim was to design a system where their parents could access ecological cleaning products for the home and raise money for the school, whilst helping the environment.

By means of a specially designed dispensing system (available to rent or buy), pupils offer cleaning products to their parents with all profits raised being invested directly back into the school. The children choose how the money will be spent.

 

The cleaning products are dispensed from concentrate into reusable bottles; thus helping to reduce carbon footprint and encourage parents to recycle their plastic spray bottles. By understanding the tangible aspects of sustainability, pupils will be able to see how everyday actions can affect our planet.

 

Head teacher 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.” 

 

From learning about recycling measures to the water cycle, environmental issues and sustainable production, Delphis Eco are hoping to inspire the leaders of tomorrow.
