British Glass and its members have teamed up with the National Schools Partnership for a new recycling education project.

Produced for 7-to 11 year-olds, the initiative will encourage children to become ‘Glass Guardians’ by teaching them the importance of recycling glass and that it can be re-melted indefinitely with no loss of quality.

Glass Guardians provides teachers with a full set of materials including videos, activity sheets and teachers' notes.

A competition asking the children to enter their creative ideas to get people recycling more glass will also run.

Brook Hayes, communications manager at British Glass, said: “At present, around one third of the bottles and jars we use never get the chance to be made into new glass - because people don’t always recycle.

“School children are our future and we want them to understand that every single glass jar and bottle that gets recycled counts.”
