Plastic Free Schools

Plastic Free Schools is a pupil led education programme, designed to equip pupils with tools and challenges that create positive, lasting environmental change.

Plastic Free Schools is a positive, investigative, action-packed vision for stopping plastic pollution at source. The programme asks pupils to not only tackle unnecessary single-use plastics in their school but inspire Industry and Government to make positive strategic steps in the same direction.

A rule breaking, change making education programme

What it takes to become a Plastic Free School.

Since late November 2017 our Plastic Free Schools programme has equipped over 200 schools to begin working towards achieving Plastic Free Schools status. Pupils from across the country are working towards the 5 step plan which challenges schools to: boycott the use of unnecessary single-use plastic in their grounds, challenge industry to make sustainable packaging changes, write to local MP’s to ask for their support and commit to sustaining a plastic free legacy at their school.
