Damers First School

Children in the Eco-Committee and Entrepreneur Club at Damers First School worked together to design, make and market an eco-product called Waxtastic No Plastic, the children even designed their own logo!

Waxtastic is a piece of 100% cotton material dipped in Dorset beeswax and dried. It is used as an alternative to cling film to wrap or cover all foods except meat. It is 100% eco-friendly.

The children sold their product outside a local supermarket, at a farmers market and even at festivals over the summer holidays. They have raised an extraordinary 3350 pounds so far and are planning to use this money to create a nature area (with a pond)!
