Housebuilder donates eco-friendly baubles and Christmas tree to local school


DANDARA East Scotland has donated a variety of eco-friendly baubles to pupils at Paradykes Primary School to help decorate the school’s Christmas tree, which was also donated by the housebuilder.

The firm, which is currently selling new homes at its Ashgrove development in Straiton, Midlothian, revealed it donated the sustainable decorations to help combat plastic pollution. The baubles are made from wood and are 100% biodegradable.

Lisa Archibald, head of sales for Dandara East Scotland, said, “We were delighted to work with Paradykes Primary School to help support a more sustainable Christmas that has a less harmful effect on the environment. It was great to see the creative designs that the children came up with for their eco-baubles and they look brilliant on the school’s tree!”

Helen Scott, acting headteacher at Paradykes Primary School, added, “It has been brilliant partnering with Dandara to help educate our pupils on the importance of sustainability and looking after our planet – all whilst getting in the Christmas spirit! The DIY eco-baubles were a fantastic way to allow pupils to get creative, and, along with the Christmas tree donated by Dandara, has made the school look very festive!”
