Welcome to Old Basford's Eco page!

We hope you find some fun ideas and tips to encourage us all to join together as a community to become more Eco Friendly and make a difference!


I would love to hear from you about any activities you have completed at home or any other ways you and your family are looking after the environment. It doesn't have to be anything big! If we all do a small amount it can help make a huge difference to our planet and to help improve the lives of all who live in it!

If you would like to share your ideas or any activities you have completed at home then please send them via email  to:

Help reduce your plastic waste!

A lot of the plastic we have used in the past has ended up in landfills.

Plastic items can take up to 1000 years to decompose! 

By ensuring we choose to recycle plastic when possible, we can make a big difference to the amount of plastic being dumped in landfills or even in rivers or oceans. We can help make our world a cleaner, safer and healthier place to live for humans and animals.

Recycle ANY old unwanted pens!

(biros, gel pens, highlighters, fountain pens....)

  If you have any old, discarded pens that no long work then please do NOT throw them away! Help us to reduce the amount of plastic sent to landfills.

We have made links with a company that is recycling ANY form of plastic pen!

Please collect pens and bring them to school once schools re-open!

Please do not collect pencils or any other form of plastic stationary.
