Children did their bit for Earth Day 2021 at Canary Wharf's Bright Horizons day nursery and preschool by playing with packaging before recycling it.
They were given new packaging to play with on April 22 to develop their fine motor skills.
It involved putting lids on bottles while encouraging each other.
"Everything that we used was recycled at the end of the day,” nursery manager Casey McKeon explained.
“The children also neatly stacked boxes to make towers.”
