They are now £1.25 from Sainsburys, but only 65p goes to RND. Sainsburys say they don't make a profit from them so where does the balance go??

I don't need one it's bitterly cold out.

Producing the noses, packaging and transporting them to all the 100s of sales points. Easy to see where the money goes.

Was very pleased to learn that one school has said no to single use plastic noses - they’ve received a letter of support from Sir David Attenborough. Hopefully more will follow next year!

It’s a school in Cornwall. The pupils will pay £1 to have their own nose painted red. The whole pound goes to Comic Relief. And no plastic.

I think I put a link on to that school in Cornwall on another thread - well done to them!

Ha ha Jalima. That must be where I read it!

More wasted, single use plastic. Pleased to see some schools are painting red noses and giving the whole £1.25 to the charity.
Maybe if enough people refuse to buy them they will stop producing them!

The red noses in Sainsburys are lovely, I bought a couple, they come in sealed boxes and are random, I got a red wolf nose and a red cat nose, my DGS loves them.

I think Sainsbury's will recycle them afterwards as carpet underlay if you take them back.

I doubt my DGS will want to part with themgrin
