How does it work?

A member of our education team will work with your school to deliver a series of sessions, usually three across a term. We find the programme works best with a smaller group of pupils, perhaps a school council or ‘eco-team’ representing different year groups.

Through fun, applied group activities the programme is designed to educate pupils about why we need to recycle, what materials can be recycled and how. By the end of the programme, the aim is to have created an educated and self-sufficient group who are able to organise and manage recycling, composting and waste minimisation activities within your school.

Following the programme, the education team will continue to support your school through follow up sessions, ensuring the improvements you have made continue to deliver great results.
