Plastic paddle board takes to the river

Moulsford Prep School were thrilled to welcome back Carolyn and Carlos from The Whale Company to run a paddle board building workshop.  With great enthusiasm from the boys, the team were able to start to put together the first of the Moulsford Paddle Board Fleet, made completely from recycled plastic bottles.

These bottles would have otherwise been added to the ever growing pile of one-use plastic bottles and it was brilliant to be able to learn how to put them to a much better use, that many of the Moulsford boys will benefit from in the future. Very kindly, Carolyn and Carlos had brought with them a couple of plastic bottle paddle boards that they have already made and a couple of the boys were able to take them on the river, demonstrating how very stable and sturdy the boards are.

It is heartening to see the Moulsford Community supporting The Whale Company's endeavours to protect the environment and make the world a better place for us all to live in.
