Eco-warrior Erin is on a mission to save planet
AN eco-warrior has succeeded in her campaign to move her school a few steps closer to becoming plastic-free.
Harwich and Dovercourt High School student Erin Seed has been leading a series of inspiring whole-school assemblies to explain the importance of caring for the environment.
She also had a private meeting with Harwich and north Essex MP Sir Bernard Jenkin to discuss carbon emissions and green energy.
With the support of her peers, the 14-year-old has managed to make this month’s sports day plastic bottle free as students and staff will be issued with a biodegradable bottle to use at one of the drinking fountains.
Erin said her passion for sustainability started when she was on holiday in Cornwall and visited the Eden Project.
