On World Wildlife Conservation Day, Cheltenham Muscat school and Oman Sail proudly set a new Guinness World Records™ title for the “Largest Plastic Bottle Sentence”. The initiative aims to raise awareness of the global issue of plastic waste and emphasize the need for collective action to reduce, reuse and recycle.
The attempt, conducted over two days in the school Sports Hall, involved five weeks of collecting household bottles, beach and wadi clean-ups, and garnered extensive support from the local community, including contributions from local hotels and the Environment Society of Oman.
Simultaneously, Cheltenham Muscat school officially launched its international conservation programme, “Project Earthlings” with the “Largest Plastic Bottle Sentence” spelling out “Project Earthlings has launched from Oman!”.
The existing record for the “Largest Plastic Bottle Sentence” was 11,939 which was achieved in Mumbai, India, on 10th October 2022. Mr. Patel commented, “Cheltenham Muscat school and Oman Sail didn’t just reach their goal of 24,000 bottles, they obliterated it, with 32,316 bottles placed. The largest letter was the “O” in Oman with 1,613 plastic bottles. It’s extremely topical that Cheltenham Muscat and Oman Sail have achieved this Guinness World Records™ title with Dubai currently hosting the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP28.”
