Meet our awesome Plastic Planet Challenge winners!

With so many inspirational global Plastic Planet Challenge entry posters to choose from, Busta had a tough job on his hands deciding on who the winners would be. In Busta’s mind so many of the entries had winning qualities he wants to congratulate everyone who took part to #Beatplasticpollution, and for making his decision so difficult.

However, Busta finally rose to his own challenge and after careful consideration and much thought Busta chose two entries which really jumped out at him.

Busta’s decision and in no particular order, a big drum roll goes out to Jake of Balcombe C of E Primary School, West Sussex UK with his ‘Message in a Bottle’ poster and Maddie of Tillingbourne Junior School, Surrey UK with her ‘Turtle’ poster.

Jake was delighted with the news ‘I enjoyed completing the poster and I feel amazed that I have won and am going to help the environment’.

Head Teacher of Balcombe school Mrs Millbanks said ‘I am very proud of Jake and his creative design and that Balcombe School is helping to fight the worldwide problem of plastic pollution’. 

Both of these brilliant designs by Jake and Maddie have now been adapted (as shown on the winning poster entries that accompany this story) into clear designs to be used to create customised refillable BPA free, plastic bottles, and both Balcombe C of E and Tillingbourne Junior school will receive 50 bottles each, with their winning design.

Well done to the winners and a huge thank you to everyone who designed a poster – remember to put the posters up on your fridges at home because together we can #Beatplasticpollution.
