A Leyland junior school has been transformed into an eco-friendly hub.

Pupils at Woodlea Junior School helped to secure a Green Flag Award after eating ‘waste free lunches’ and joining the gardening club.

Big supermarket chains including Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons made donations to reward the children who consistently brought a waste free lunch, and the school’s kitchen staff are now behind the move too.

Bosses at the school are so forward-thinking that they’ve even had new toilet facilities installed, which were designed by the Extreme Green Team to reduce water and energy consumption.

The gardening club grows produce to sell to parents, and there is an orchard area to attract more wildlife.

The Fairtrade Committee also took part in the world record for the longest fairtrade cotton bunting.
