Busta's Great Banana Bake Off


Around 160 million bananas are wasted every year by British families

The Great Banana Bake Off is a whole school competition inviting staff, children, families and friends to make yummy things from ripe and speckled bananas to save sweet, over-ripe bananas from the bin.

It’s simple and easy to take part, all you need to do is download the recipe book, get baking and let us know how many bananas you have saved.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time for banana-drama in the kitchen, let’s all go bananas about wasted bananas! Save the mighty banana!


The Home Recycling Challenge 2017

The Home Recycling Challenge was a whole school competition that got pupils to understand how to recycle right at home. It was simple and easy to take part, all teachers needed to do was send a homework sheet home with their pupils and let us know the number they had returned. The competition closed on the 25th of September and the winning school won an exciting visit from Busta and Maddie and £1000!

The Home Recycling Challenge was a fantastic way to engage schools in caring for the environment. It could also count towards a prestigious Eco-Schools award.
