Pupils at an East Renfrewshire school have been turning rubbish into fashion to raise awareness about waste reduction and recycling.

Students from the Isobel Mair School, in Newton Mearns, put on a ‘trashion’ show that featured garments created from reused and recycled materials.

Parents went along to show their support for the school’s #OneUseIsNoUse campaign to educate about the dangers of single-use plastics and the need to protect the environment.

Representatives from waste management company Biffa and environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful were also in attendance.

The school’s headteacher, Hazel McKinnon, said: “The aim of our campaign is to spread the word on the importance of reduce, reuse, refuse and recycle, as well as the importance of picking up litter, and the pupils modelled their creations with their own touch of style during their Trashion showcase.

“Those who came along have been a tremendous support to the school and we hope to continue to build on these links in future.”

Earlier this year, the school ditched single-use plastic cups, bowls and water bottles.

Staff and pupils will continue to encourage the local community to ditch single-use plastics through the sale of a re-useable mug designed as part of an eco-enterprise project.

Mrs McKinnon added: “We are committed to promoting a sustainable future for our community and ensuring that our pupils have opportunities to make meaningful contributions to their community.”
