JPSA Reducing Plastic Waste

Did you know that large schools like ours throw away around 120,000 plastic bottles and cans each year! In terms of harmful C02 generated, that’s the volume of one Olympic sized swimming pool each day! Many bottles still do not get recycled, even those that do get recycled are creating more harmful CO2 into our environment at each stage of the recycling process.

To reduce our impact on the environment we have new ‘generationJuice Drinks Hubs’ which allow students to purchase a variety of flavoured drinks dispensed into their own reusable bottles.

Please remember to send your child to the academy with a 500ML drinks bottle. Students can purchase a token from the canteen for the drink machines or use our water fountains.

500ML water bottles can be bought from Student Services for £2.
