Pupils from Inverlochy Primary School have proven to be very enterprising young elves this Christmas, by manufacturing everything from Christmas decorations, to coasters, keyrings and wallets by recycling bicycle parts.
It is part of a Young Enterprise looking at a ‘Circular Economy’ with every class creating a product using only recycled materials, forming a business to market them.
The older pupils came up with the business name ‘Bike from the Dead’, with the catchy slogan ‘Don’t retyre – recycle’ and company members giving a presentation on how it had been achieved.
The products, made from discarded gears, chains and inner tubes supplied by local business, Off Beat Bikes, are now available online at lochaberhigh.org.uk/bike-from-the-dead
