Redcliffe School brings ‘plogging’ to the Royal Borough

Redcliffe School is a ‘beacon’ school, known for their focus on Education for Social Responsibility and teaching children to work towards to the United Nation’s Global Goals end extreme poverty and build a better world by 2030.

The school’s concept is to develop a deep understanding of the World’s social, environmental and economic challenges – while learning about solutions too, including sustainable and ethical living.

In this spirit Redcliffe School has become the first school in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to found their very own Plogging Club: jogging while picking up litter, teaching children about fitness whilst making a positive impact within our local community. Plogging was introduced to us by Dermot Kavanagh, co-founder of Plogolution  https://plogolution.com/ . The children are provided with their very own Plogolution t-shirts, protective gloves, biodegradable collection bags, litter-pickers and the knowledge of what to pick up and what to avoid. The first plog the children collected approximately 30 pieces of plastic, 20 cans, 500 cigarette butts, lots of paper and general rubbish.
