A Slough based recycling technology company at the heart of the fight to clean up our oceans shared thoughts and ideas with excited school pupils.

The pupils - all aged seven to 13 - were all from St George's School at Windsor Castle.

The company is Ocean Polymers which is based at Grays Place in Slough.

It has an ambitious plan to deliver a fleet of marine based waste processing systems operating in the world’s oceans, river mouths and estuaries.

It will produce valuable synthetic gas from the plastic and waste collected which will be utilised to fuel the boat, making it a fully sustainable project.

Pupils at St George's actually learn scuba diving so they proved an attentive audience as they heard about the company's plans.

Executive Director, Project and Operations Manager at Ocean Polymers Heather Wigglesworth said: “What a complete honour to talk ideas and consider the impact of the mess we have made in our oceans with an exceptional group of children.

"Their questions and genuine concern at the damage we have caused is so reassuring that the next generation really care about the mess their predecessors have made. The fact this school facilitates an introduction to scuba diving at an early age, which always generates an inherent love of our ocean planet, is just fantastic."

Headteacher William Goldsmith said: “It was an absolute privilege for our school community to hear of such an inspirational initiative and it truly captured the interest and hearts of the pupils and staff alike."
