ACTIVITY 1 - classroom waste
Can you recycle more at School?
Have a look at what you throw away in your class bin. Can any of it be recycled? Download a record chart.
Can you make a list of useful items that can now be made from recycled materials – for example some fleece jackets are made from recycled plastic bottles?
activity 2 - litter pick
Have a look at your school playground and field – is there litter on the ground?
• Litter makes the place look untidy
• Litter can harm wildlife and the environment – can you find out how long it takes for litter to decompose?
Why not take part in the Keep Britain Tidy Love Where You Live campaign?
