Yesterday, our Eco club participated in a litter pick held in the Compton Park area, working with members of the Friends of Smestow Valley. Armed with gloves and bags, the team worked tirelessly to clean up the environment, ensuring that the area remained a clean place for both wildlife and people alike. The collective effort of both our Eco Club and the Friends of Smestow Valley was inspiring, seeing them come together to make a positive impact on our local community and promote environmental stewardship.

During the litter pick, the dedicated team collected a substantial amount of rubbish, uncovering even an old iron. This discovery served as a reminder of the detrimental effects of littering, not only tarnishing the beauty of our surroundings but also posing significant threats to the local wildlife. Discarded items like this can be hazardous, potentially causing harm to animals and disrupting the delicate balance of the ecosystem. As our Eco Club cleared away the litter, the importance of responsible waste disposal to protect both our environment and its inhabitants was reinforced.

we couldn’t be prouder of the incredible effort put forth by our Eco Club during yesterday’s litter pick. Their dedication and hard work have without doubt made a significant impact, contributing to the ongoing mission of creating a cleaner and more sustainable environment for everyone in our local community. By actively engaging in initiatives like this, our Eco Club members demonstrate the power of collective action and the positive change it can bring about. Their commitment to preserving the beauty of our surrounding not only benefits us all but also serves as an inspiration for others to join in the work of environmental stewardship.

The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and care for it. – Genesis 2:15
