A GROUP of budding entrepreneurs are selling metal water bottles to reduce the amount of plastic waste as part of the Young Enterprise Scheme.

Thirteen students from The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge created a range of metal bottles after forming their company 'Sea and Sky' and are selling their products to local businesses for £9.99.

It is part of the national Young Enterprise Scheme which encourages youngsters to form a business and create a product.

The group also sold bottles at the Orchard Shopping Centre in Taunton earlier this month and were inspired to start the business after seeing the rise in plastic waste in our oceans.

George Lawrence from Sea and Sky, said: "We have already had an excellent reaction from students, teachers, family and friends and we have already sold some of the bottles at school.

"We will also be taking part in a beach clean on Burnham beach as we want to make a difference to the local area.

"We also took part in an event at the Orchard Shopping Centre in Taunton where we had a great reaction from the general public.

"We will also be selling to businesses in the local area with there own logo on."
