Doing your bit...

We are committed in helping the education industry to reduce waste and to teach the next generations about being more environmentally friendly.  With eco-schools being taken out of the curriculum, schools have little to be accountable for in regard to waste and outdoor learning. It is down to each of them to consciously put this at the forefront and we know as teachers they have enough to do.  Our approach was created with that in mind.


Just by simply doing our approach, that still covers attainment and supports learning they are making and environmental impact, while reducing waste, saving energy and using less paper and plastics! 

These are some of the things we are working on to better help achieve this:


       Inform schools of organisations like Barnardo’s and NPAC who can help reuse

       To work more with organisations that help schools reduce plastic

       To better promote those that encourage schools to reuse, recycle

       Support families in schools by providing packs and resources

       Support teachers and how they can apply this in their personal life
