The Ignite! Sustainability group got crafty this week making bird feeders and windowsill herb gardens in an effort to “think global, act local”. The bird feeders will help our declining British garden birds during the winter months, whilst the windowsill herb gardens will help to reduce food miles and plastic waste. Very few products were purchased to make these items, for example, the pots for the herbs were donated by Pete, the School Porter, and the bird feeder pots were used cups and bottles from the Dining Hall. The bird feeders cost 38 pence each to make and will make a difference in keeping garden birds alive and healthy now that we are rapidly approaching the shortest day and coldest time of the year. The group had a brilliant time making them (apart from the smell!) and were pleased to be doing something beneficial for the environment.
