CRNS 2017 Schools Challenge – Reuse v Recycle

CRNS 2017 Schools Challenge – Reuse v Recycle

The CRNS 2017 Schools Challenge has been launched and sets the task for schools to make a short commercial describing the difference between Reuse and. Recycle.   These words are frequently used in the wrong context so CRNS would like to give the public a chance to understand the difference with the help of some creative schoolchildren

We challenge schools to create and produce a 1-2 minute commercial explaining the difference between reuse and recycle to the public. Imagine this commercial is going to be aired during prime time television e.g. during  the X-Factor on a Saturday evening.

The children need to get the message over clearly to viewers so that they understand the difference between Reuse and Recycle.
