52 Lives runs Kindness Workshops for thousands of primary school children every year. We used to give every child a plastic badge. What a waste! We don’t want to be responsible for adding so much plastic waste to the world, so we have just replaced the badges with these - recyclable certificates with a drawn on badge, as well as pencils made from recycled CD cases. The kids still love them, but they’re a bit kinder to the planet. We’re not perfect and I’m sure there’s more we could be doing so we’ll keep looking for ways to get better.
(Our School workshops are funded with prize money from my Clarins Woman of the Year Award and also with the kind support of The National Lottery Community Fund)
