Here at First Education and School Travel we are continuing with our commitment to providing a more sustainable, greener packaged travel service to our school group customers.

From April 2022 onwards we are adding a new, fun and environmentally friendly initiative for pupils to get involved in where we will be providing a free matchbox of wildflower seeds for each pupil taking part in our residential visit packages.

Children can either take the seed boxes home or sow the seed balls around the school grounds as part of a larger school project – the carbon capture that these flowers will produce will go towards offsetting the carbon footprint of your planned visit(s)…… and will also enhance your local environment and encourage bees and insects too!!

A 100 percent recycled matchbox containing 6 wildflower seed balls - a super simple way to grow wildflowers from seed.

We take our approach to sustainability very seriously and are committed to helping to drive down carbon deposits by using cleaner diesel engines in our coach provision, thus ensuring that your future residential visits are carried out in a cleaner, more environmentally considered manner.

Your wild flower seed matchboxes will be posted out to you around the time of your planned visit. Free seed boxes are available to all current booked visits and to all new bookings.

Here’s to a blooming marvellous school trip.
