ECO-WEEK EVENT 1: BUY A BAMBOO TOOTH BRUSH

ECO-WEEK - Knox Academy's annual week dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues and encouraging the school community to embrace more sustainable practices - is NEXT WEEK! Yes, March 11-15 is Eco-Week and the Eco-Committee has planned SO MANY events for Knox students and staff! Keep an eye out on the bulletin and our twitter account for all the news! Here's our first event...

Our first event is bamboo tooth brush sales! After conducting an online survey with registration classes, the Eco-Committee found that students and staff were interested in buying eco-friendly toothbrushes. We'll be selling bamboo toothbrushes in the social area during lunch times on Wednesday 13 March and Thursday 14 March. And here's the best part - they're ONLY £2 each! That's an absolute steal for a toothbrush that uses no plastic whatsoever! You won't find that low price for a bamboo toothbrush anywhere else! The bamboo is pure and vegan, grown without fertilizers or pesticides, the bamboo is compostable, 100% biodegradable, and the bristles are made of BPA Free biodegradable nylon. These really are the most eco-friendly option for your teeth! We have a limited amount of tooth brushes with 3 types of bristles: soft, medium, and firm. If you'd like to pre-order your bamboo toothbrush to ensure that you get your preferred bristle type, please bring £2 to Miss Laudi this week and let her know which type you'd like. You can then collect your fancy new bamboo toothbrush during Eco-Week! Alternatively, buy your toothbrush during Eco-Week and if you'd like to buy some for your family and friends, we encourage that too!
