Jessie The Jellyfish

Incorporating Jessie The Jellyfish Into The Classroom With Agilico

Agilico-partnered schools are urged to bring Jessie the Jellyfish into classrooms, emphasising ways to aid ocean recovery from plastic pollution

Agilico is a business built on helping businesses to move forward successfully in an ever-changing landscape.

In many industries and sectors, there is rapid and continuous change and it’s important to be ready and reactive. Agilico can ensure that happens by being ahead of the game as a trusted provider of workplace technology.

Bringing cutting-edge technology into a workplace can have such a huge impact on operational effectiveness, and that’s why Agilico covers everything from managed print services and automated invoice processing, to hosted VoIP telephony solutions and agile working.

Agilico leads the way in technology and workplace solutions, while also actively progressing its journey towards achieving the UN SDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals).

As part of that initiative, they’re flying the flag for Jessie the Jellyfish – a sustainable children’s book following the story of Jessie, a lonely jellyfish.It’s a story about the changing dynamics of our wonderful oceans and how they face the growing issue of plastic pollution.

Jessie the Jellyfish is a story of heartbreak and hope, and it really underpins the global issues we are facing today. The idea is that readers will learn what we can do to help Jessie and her friends, and then they’ll act on that.

With beautiful illustrations, children and adults alike will feel inspired to make positive changes to their own lives and communities.

Centre Stage – Jessie The Jellyfish

As a business, Agilico is taking matters into its own hands and promising that any school that has taken any of Agilico’s refurbished devices will receive a complimentary copy of the book to encourage eco-conscious learning and to teach pupils about sea plastics.

Jessie the Jellyfish takes centre stage for us. However, there are a number of other important ways in which Agilico is marking its UN SDG journey. These include:

  • Biodegradable wrapping for devices and pallets using innovative bioplastics made from natural resources
  • Removing all plastic bottled water from offices and sites across Great Britain
  • Fitting renewable energy sources at offices and warehouses up and down the country
  • Building a company fleet of hybrid and electric vehicles
  • Introducing regular Strava challenges to improve the mental and physical health of colleagues
  • Continuing to refurbish ex-showroom or low-utilisation devices from Agilico’s purpose built national MFD refurbishment centre in Leicester
  • A partnership with the Alan Shearer Foundation for the Great North Run 2024
  • Reusing and recycling parts from old machines, such as MFD rollers and toners etc
