BWMB to educate children on sustainability of wool

Apr '10
Wool is the world's most sustainable fibre' just one of the many facts that children will learn about wool when the British Wool Marketing Board takes part in the Spring Fling event at the Norfolk Showground on April 15th.

Gareth Jones of the BWMB said many children still didn't know very much about wool' some didn't even know it was produced by sheep.

"Sustainability is the buzz word in educating children as we encourage them to become more aware of how we use the planet's resources" and there's nothing more sustainable than wool.

"When many of today's children could see world oil supplies dry up in their own lifetime, a greater awareness of the importance of sustainable fibres like wool is an essential part of their education," said Mr Jones.

The British Wool Marketing Board's stand will have a selection of different types of wool - produced by a range of sheep breeds' to help children understand how each fleece has its own qualities to enable it to be used for various purposes. Examples of wool used to produce yarn, carpets, blankets and other products will be on display.
