PUPILS from Huddersfield schools are set to bag themselves some “green” goodies.
Supermarket chain Asda is urging schools to sign up for its Go Green voucher scheme.
This encourages youngsters and their families to cut down on plastic bag use.
Green vouchers are given to Asda customers who choose to re-use their old plastic carrier bags or not use a plastic bag at all when they shop at the company’s Bradford Road store.
The vouchers are handed out regardless of how much is spent at the tills.
The vouchers can be swapped for educational “eco-equipment”, such as growbags, pocket microscopes, solar panels and remote control camera bird tables.
Store manager Shaun Pearson said: “Customers don’t need to spend thousands of pounds in stores in order to help their school and the environment.
“All we are asking is that you re-use your bags and use your vouchers to help your local school, so that they can cash them in for lots of great green prizes.”
Other schools can find out more about the scheme by visiting their local store or going to www.asda-gogreenforschools.co.uk
