Greenhouse was made out of recycled plastic bottles
A greenhouse made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles won Lyndhurst Junior School the Care of the Environment category

Youngsters at the school in Crofton Road, North End, Portsmouth, created the 8ftx6ft structure out of 1,500 two-litre bottles.

Teacher Marian Green said: This is a great achievement for the kids.

Maggie Haynes, of the Tuppenny Barn, said: The activity showed children what you can do with something that is potentially rubbish, turning it into something useful and lasting.
