Baxi, the UK heating and renewables specialist, has called upon schools nationwide to help celebrate the launch of the Baxi EnergyHub Junior website.
Coinciding with National Walk to School week beginning 18th-22nd May 2009, 30 pupils have received a Baxi ‘Small Steps’ walking pack containing a pedometer, a uni Power Tank Eco pen and a four-week personal record sheet, that pupils will use to record the amount of steps taken to and from school.
With CO2, obesity and air pollution high on the school agenda, the resources will engage children and help raise awareness among families on the simplest of ways to save energy and decrease their carbon footprint.
By taking part in the campaign, pupils will be included into a national prize draw to win a family trip to the Eden Project and one school will win £400 active sport vouchers. There is also a chance to win an Eco Media Player by logging on to www.baxienergyhub.co.uk and becoming an EnergyHub Junior.
The Baxi EnergyHub website is an informative online resource packed with impartial advice and information about energy conservation. There is also an additional section that has been created especially for children. Baxi EnergyHub Juniors, introduced by four characters, will include ideas on how to save energy and CO2 emissions, fun downloads, competitions and information to guide and educate the younger generation.
Geraldine Clegg, marketing communications manager for Baxi, explained: “The idea behind the Baxi EnergyHub junior website is to get children interested in saving energy for future generations. Walking to school can highlight a number of different ways that one-person taking small steps can make a difference.”
