Green Awareness Award for an Eco Team or Club 2018 

"Eco Warriors" 
Nominated by: Gemma Clark  
Sunnyhill Primary School in London are responsible for creating a park and stride map to reduce pollution and increase safety outside their school. The warriors have organised "keep our streets tidy" poster projects, taken part in a food waste work shop, food composting, pitched at city hall for a £1000 prize from Unilever and Team London to run their projects and won! Organised a Great Sunnyhill Spring clean, started a war on one use plastic, focussed on global waste issues and encouraged other schools to start their own Eco Groups!! 
On a day to day basis the warriors work in pairs and are responsible for collecting the recycling and speaking to the children and teachers about what can be recycled and what should not be put in the recycling bags. 
The success of the Eco Warriors project is measured in the positive change in behaviour and attitudes around the school, the measure of waste collected, weighing food waste, taking surveys and the impact it has on the children lower down in the school. 
The Eco Warriors hold assemblies, meet with other schools all to highlight what is important to them. 
There are now recycling bins in each of the class rooms, food waste bins, a park and stride policy, reduced lunch time waste, cleaner playgrounds and so much more.  
The leaders of the Eco Warrior groups grow in confidence day by day, some of them find things difficult but this has given them something to focus on and be passionate about.  
The Eco Warriors have forged links with businesses such as Veolia, Unilever and Groundworks UK.  
All of the hard work the Eco Warriors have put in, will continue to grow year on year as their foundation is solid.  
Congratulations to Miss Clark and the Eco Warriors at Sunnyhill Primary School for winning the "Green Awareness Award for an Eco Team or Club 2018"
