A North Norfolk school has started its bid to become an eco-school by launching a host of new projects including investing in a plastic granulator.
As part of the initiative students at Cromer Academy will be encouraged to get involved with planning and taking part in beach cleans, planting trees and making full use of the school's new plastic granulator.
The academy also hopes to become a plastic-free environment, with students actively encouraged to think about their environmental footprint and consumption of single-use plastic.
Isabel England, a year seven student, said: "It’s really important that we do our bit to help the planet because not everyone is doing that.
"If our community can inspire more people to do this we will be able to make a huge difference and really help in the future.
