Plastic clever schools

Empowering young people for a plastic waste free future. We have an ambition for at least 50% of our school to become Plastic Clever and be the first Plastic Clever City in the UK.

How does it work?

Plastic Clever Schools provides young people and their teachers with everything they need to become Plastic Clever. Our online platform and interactive workbooks and toolkits help young people to lead their school community through three simple stages: Inspire, Investigate, Act.

  1. Inspire - Learn about plastic and engage the whole school community
  2. Investigate - Understand the problem and bring the right people together to solve it
  3. Act - Deliver school-wide campaigns to wave goodbye to single use plastic
