Provided by Independent Digital News & Media Limited

A group of schoolchildren have said theyre not going to wear red noses in aid of Comic Relief due to the detrimental effect plastic can have on the environment.

The students, who attend Ysgol Treganna in Cardiff, Wales, have decided to paint their noses red instead for Red Nose Day in order to raise money for charity.

A pupil called Mia wrote a letter to her school asking that the academic institution encourage all its students to follow suit.

I wrote a letter to the school suggesting we dont wear red noses as I thought it was a good idea because its made of plastic and it goes into the sea and harms sea life, Mia told theBBC.

Fellow student called Tomos echoed his classmates sentiments, saying: The plastic noses are only used for one day and after that they are binned which can really harm nature.

Another pupil called Bethan explained her reasoning for opting to paint her nose red instead of wearing a plastic red nose, saying that there are not many uses for the red nose, which is why wearing one can be a waste.

Its just there to put on your nose for a day and I dont think youre going to walk around every day with a red nose, she added.

The first Red Nose Day was held in 1988, when comedian and co-founder of Comic Relief Lenny Henry celebrated the event with a group of children in Ethiopa.

More than 150 celebrities and comedians also took part in the event, and more than 30 million viewers watched it on TV.

Red Nose Day raised more than 15m in its inaugural year.

Comic Relief has stated that it admires the Cardiff schoolchildren for taking a stand against plastic pollution.

We of course respect the students decision and are excited they are still supporting Red Nose Day by painting their noses red and fundraising, a spokesperson for the charity toldThe Independent.

We are working with our corporate partners and a responsible sourcing consultancy to explore alternatives and solutions for the future.

The spokesperson also said while it doesnt view its merchandise as single-use items, it does recognise our responsibility to ensure that all of our campaign products which raise so much for good causes are as environmentally friendly as possible.
