Second Eco Flag for Morton Mains Nursery


Morton Mains Nursery in Edinburgh has been awarded their Eco Flag for the second time. The award scheme empowers children to think economically, socially and environmentally about the world we live in.

Eco Schools is an international initiative designed to encourage whole-school community action on Learning for Sustainability. Morton Mains children are continually encouraged to think about their environment and responsibility of looking at one and another. The children recycle paper, use watering cans and make birdfeeders. The children also took part in ‘Clean Up Scotland’ by picking up litter from the immediate surroundings of the nursery.

The nursery will soon be receiving a second compost bin and plan to start a wormery. In the garden there is also a bug hotel to promote biodiversity to educate children about minibeasts. Each year the nursery takes part in ‘Earth Hour’ to reflect on the usage of electricity in their immediate world and R.S.P.B. bird watch to record the numbers and species of wild birds visiting our garden.

Nursery Manager, Karin Duguid, said “Our second Eco Flag is a true reflection of the outstanding work and efforts staff and children are involved in daily. We are so proud to be part of the rewarding legacy”.
