We work with a range of communities to help promote recycling. This includes children and young people through our work with schools, youth groups, scouts, brownies and more. We also work with adult groups such as the Women’s Institute.
We deliver interactive talks to classes and school assemblies. If required and where possible, we can tailor our talks and activities to fit in with your curriculum.
Each workshop contains a mixture of practical activities and group discussion to explore the topic. Here are the workshops we offer:
- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – Pupils are encouraged to explore how they can reduce reuse and recycle their waste, all while learning more about the amazing products waste can be turned into.
- Composting Champions (seasonal) – This workshop gives pupils the practical skills to start composting at school as well as at home. It lets them explore the basics of composting, including where best to locate a composter, what to compost and how it works.
- Is Plastic Fantastic? – This session discusses the impacts of plastic on humans, animals and the environment.
- Love Food Hate Waste - This workshop raises awareness regarding issues on food waste, including appropriate storage of food, use by and sell by dates, meal planning and simple food leftover recipes.
