The clothing collection for Rock Trust will continue throughout this week until Friday 22 March. We're looking for clean clothes for ages 16-25. Please bring all donations to Miss Laudi's room. The deadline for buying a bamboo toothbrush for £2 is also this Friday. If you would like one, please place your order with Miss Laudi!

Thanks to the enthusiasm of Knox students and staff, the Eco-Committee completely sold out of our first batch of bamboo toothbrushes! You're all amazing for making the switch! Due to demand, we're still taking orders for bamboo toothbrushes. If you'd still like to order some (you're welcome to buy more than 1), please bring in your money to Miss Laudi by the end of this week. Based on the number of payments, we'll order a new batch of toothbrushes and deliver them to you once they come in! At only £2 per toothbrush, it's an excellent price! Thanks for your Eco-Week support!

As a reminder, the eco-shop Lil (website here) will be at Knox Academy on Tuesday 12 March during lunch time in the social area and during S2 parents night from 5pm-7pm in the locker area. Lil will be selling a variety of eco-friendly products which you may be interested in trying out! This a great opportunity to explore your options and to try some eco-friendly items for the first time! They accept cash, card, and applepay. We're looking forward to welcoming Lil in to Knox!

Our final Eco-Week initiative is a clothing collection for Rock Trust, a charitable organisation that works with young people aged 16 to 25 who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Rock Trust provides useful services like one-to-one support, group programmes, employability training, and volunteering/work experience opportunities. To help young people, Rock Trust also provides supplies like clothing. A year and a half ago, the Eco-Committee ran a donation campaign for Rock Trust and we collected 94 kilos of donations! Let's see if we can top that this year!

We're collecting donations of clean clothes in good condition (ages 16-25/sizes 8-16) from March 11 to 22 - that's two whole weeks! And this comes at a great time because you might be doing some spring cleaning at home and realize that in the depths of your closet, you have a lot of clothes you rarely wear! Rather than send those clothes to landfill, let's put them toward a good cause! Clothing donations can be brought to Miss Laudi's room from March 11-22. We look forward to seeing the Knox community come together for another good cause!
