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.

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.
