Sitting pretty on green issues with recycle furniture at Ringmer Community College

Ringmer Community College has been busy doing essential works updating The Clark Block, one of the older parts of the college named after the first Principal back in 1958.

With the college’s environmental ethos in the forefront of the students’ mind, the Eco Reps were asked to choose the furniture to go with the refurbishment – and they responsibly chose items that have been manufactured out of recycled plastic.

Eco Rep Rebecca Tuppen said: “It’s great to have an area where we can sit and relax and know that the furniture is all Eco-friendly.”

Steve Green, Eco Coordinator at the college, said: “The Eco Reps have been involved in many aspects of the college’s build and updates over the years.

“The students feel so strongly about how we use resources and have worked so hard to assist other colleges initiate their own Eco programmes recently. They truly are inspiring to the younger students in making them think about what we leave for future generations.”

Six A Level Graphics students from the college recently took part in a challenge to design a poster for the fossil fuel book, The Burning Question.
