The application process for 2013 began in the middle of January in conjunction with the children’s newspaper First News. Over 300 schools encompassing 75,000 children have been successful in their bid to take part in this campaign and will receive their Trash Pack kits this week. Each kit includes a Teachers’ Pack full of Trash Pack inspired notes and lesson ideas that tie in with the National Curriculum and bring a new take on recycling to the classroom.
In addition pupils will be asked to send in their own Trash Pack Recycling Superhero poster to be in with a chance of winning equipment for their schools. They will also receive a Series 3 Trashie to enhance or start their own collections; opening up a sampling exercise for the brand.
Anne-Marie Noon, marketing manager, GP Flair, commented: “With so many different characters to collect the delightfully disgusting gang has captured the imagination of children everywhere. Once again we are thrilled with the response we have had from schools for the Trash Pack Recycling Campaign. Kids love everything gross and have really engaged with the Trash Pack brand, so for us at Flair it is a great platform to be able to teach kids all about the benefits of recycling whilst still bringing an element of fun in a totally Trashie way.”
More news about the competition winners will be available after the judging date in April.
