The amount of masks littering the KTS and community has inspired J Farrow to make a change...
As I was walking to school I noticed that there was a lot of rubbish outside on the streets. A lot of the rubbish was face masks. They were not being put in the bin - just left on the ground!
"900 animals have been caught in rubbish like masks"
Dogs and cats can be really injured from face masks and other pieces of rubbish that are on the floor. I want to make a clean and green environment in and outside KTS school. To set an example for people walking by or people looking inside the school. Since March 2020, the RSPCA has had to help more than 900 animals caught in litter like masks. Many of these were birds who are getting their feet caught up in disposable masks.
To make KTS green and clean, if you walk to school and see a piece of rubbish, and there's a bin nearby, please pick it up and put it in the bin. If people start doing this it will hopefully be a thing people naturally do on their way to school.
