Save our Butterflies schools competition As part of CEMEX UK's partnership with Butterfly Conservation, our charity of the year, CEMEX has published a leaflet with some top tips to protect butterflies and months, both of which are good indicators of a healthy environment.
This leaflet has been distributed to 1200 primary schools near some of our key operations across the country in conjunction with a competition to design a 'Save our Butterflies' poster. The winning school is being announced to coincide with Butterfly Conservation's Save Our Butterflies week at the end of July.
CEMEX is also working to improve conditions for butterflies at a number of sites, including Barrington in Cambridgeshire, South Ferriby in North Lincolnshire, Southam in Warwickshire, Blackwater Valley in Hampshire and others, by growing flower-rich grassland or special plants, such as kidney vetch, and undertaking woodland coppicing.
