As part of the climate change ambassador self-directed option, we are planning to build a greenhouse from recycled plastic bottles.
The UCL Academy received the go-ahead to begin constructing and urgently need as many empty, clear plastic bottles as possible. We require at least 2,000 1 or 2 litre bottles to make the project a success.
Bottles are currently being stored in the bike storage area. A prize will be awarded to the person who brings in the most bottles.
Please contact Ms Elusade if you have any questions.
