Entrepreneurship and environmental awareness went hand-in-hand for Novacia – Putney’s Young Entreprise team and proud winners of “Best Sales Team” for their reusable sandwich bags.

Mayor of Wandsworth, Piers McCausland, was on hand to help judge the companies and give the awards which were held as part of Wandsworth Enterprise Month this week.

Eesha M in Year 12 explained how they had come up with the idea:

“Climate change is a huge problem and it affects our generation more than any. It’s our planet and our future – if we don’t make a stand on these issues, how can we expect anyone else to?”

Novacia’s resuable pouches are made from 100% cotton coated with beeswax, jojoba and resin to ensure they are recyclable, waterproof,  food safe, and easy to clean. The team are currently making the product in school and in their homes and are taking orders for the pouches priced at £8 per pouch with £2 delivery.

“We are very passionate about the cause,” Eesha said. “Many people took our business cards on the day, so we’re hoping that the pre-orders will come flooding in.”

Well done to all our Young Enterprise teams for their hard work and commitment to their many innovative projects.
