New Leaf Compost has joined with St Patrick’s High School in Keady, Co Armagh to support its Student Environmental Group.
The firm is supporting the work of the school’s eco-friendly group with both direct sponsorship and a donation of its compost.
New Leaf Compost’s donation will assist with various environmental projects within the school grounds including the development of wildflower areas as well as boosting the number of insects and pollinators within the Keady area.
The compost the school is using is made from the discarded food and garden waste collected within the local area and perfectly illustrates the circular economy in action.
It is part of its sister company Natural World Product’s (NWP) programme to support community projects across Northern Ireland.
The company is also sponsoring a perpetual cup for the Young Environmentalist at the High School each year.
