Artwork created by pupils from a Basingstoke School has been displayed on the exterior of a local Stagecoach Bus running across Basingstoke and the surrounding area.
As part of Stagecoach's recent Green Week, pupils at Great Binfields Primary School were asked to design posters on the theme of what green means to them.
Operations Manager for Basingstoke, Martin Gibbon said: "We received some very colourful entries. It's great to see young children embracing local and global environmental issues and taking practical steps to reduce their carbon footprint so I'm extremely delighted to be able to display their artwork on our bus."
Stagecoach’s annual Green Week aims to raise awareness of environmental issues among staff and passengers through a series of events. It is currently in the third year of a five-year plan to reduce its own carbon footprint as a business.
Since the inaugural Stagecoach Green Week in 2009, the bus group has made significant strides in its drive to take action on climate change.
The school received a visit from Stagecoach to present the vehicle to the young pupils and to thank them for their hard work.
