1000 Brilliant Baubles

1000 Brilliant Baubles

Following the success of last year's 1,000 Suffolk Stars project this year schools across the county were invited by Suffolk Waste Partnership to make 1,000 Brilliant Baubles! They have used recycled materials to decorate old CD’s which have been hung at at two major Suffolk venues.

We had a great response and received 1,200 baubles! Twenty-three schools, two guide and brownie groups and a library have taken part. The baubles are have been installed upstairs at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds and inside the Town Hall in Ipswich.  They will be in the Town Hall in Ipswich until the 8th January and in the Apex until mid January so do go and have a look!

The baubles look fantastically festive and will be seen by thousands of visitors over the Christmas period.  The project has captured the imagination of the schools and is a great celebration of recycling in Suffolk!  It is also a reminder that making decorations and presents from reused and recycled materials is especially important at Christmas when we all produce more waste than usual.

Take a look at our picture gallery!
