Pupils across the UK have been completing a series of important missions as part of Asda’s Plastic Investigators Club. The sixth and most important mission of all, challenged pupils to spread the word with a poster competition encouraging others to recycle.
The PI Club headquarters received over 6,000 mission posters – a truly staggering amount!
Andy Murray, Chief Customer Officer for Asda said;
“We had so many fantastic entries to our poster competition and we were really impressed with the children’s creativity and passion for tacking plastic pollution.”
As part of the Plastic Investigators programme teachers were given access to a full set of resources to take their pupils on a fun fact-finding mission about plastic. There was even the opportunity for teachers to extend the learning experience beyond the classroom with a trip to an Asda store.
Now we are pleased to announce the winners of the Plastic Investigators competition. Congratulations to our super PI Agents:
