Cottesmore Academy pupils write letters to raise awareness of effects of palm oil on environment after being inspired by banned Iceland advert

A class of primary school pupils have written letters to readers about the devastating effects of palm oil on the environment.

The Year 5 and 6 class at Cottesmore Academy were inspired after watching the 2018 Iceland advert, which raised awareness of the plight of orangutans as a result of products made using palm oil.

The advert was banned because it was deemed to breach political advertising rules but teacher Billy Wakefield thought the message was important, so shared it with his class.
