THEY'VE already helped win their school a top award for sustainability. But now, Yeo Valley Primary School's Year 6 Eco Club is selling the school's very own organic cotton bags in a bid to encourage fellow pupils, teachers and parents to stop using throw-away plastic bags.Green-thinking 10 and 11-year-olds at the Barnstaple school are selling the new bags on their after-school Fair Trade stall."We want to try and make people think about the environment and make the school more eco-friendly," said Eco Club member Mollie Amos.The Yeo Valley bag, designed by children at the school and part of 3,000 launched by North Devon Council across three local schools, went on sale for the first time at the school's community fun day on Saturday.Bags designed by pupils at Kingsacre School, Braunton, went on sale earlier this month, while an Instow School bag will be launched at the village show on July 5.Any profits made from the sale of the bags will go to the schools.
