Reusable bottles to help Cowley become a ‘Plastic Free School’

From September 2022, the new Cowley reusable drinks bottle will become a part of the students’ equipment to bring to College every day.

As part of Cowley’s initiative to become a Plastic Free School, we are moving away from single-use plastic bottles and encouraging students to use the water fountains around the College building and to fill up drinks into their own personal bottle.

At the beginning of the academic year, in September 2022, every student will be issued with a complimentary Cowley reusable drinks bottle which will become part of their daily equipment to bring to College.

Recently, we ran a competition for students, asking them to design the new bottles. Staff have shortlisted the six best designs and students in every year group will be able to vote for their favourite next week during Team Time.

The design with the most votes will become the brand new Cowley bottle, produced and issued to everyone on the return to College in September.

We’ll share the winning design with you once all the votes are in. Good luck to all those involved in the vote!
