Plastic Clever Schools

Working with schools to help them become Plastic Clever

 Want your school to be plastic clever?

How to become a Plastic Clever School

Becoming a Plastic Clever School just requires a school to make some effort towards reducing the BIG 4 plastic polluters (you know the ones we keep going on about):

coffee cups + lids, plastic bottles, straws and plastic bags.

We’re not keen on plastic cutlery and some other easy-to-avoid items as well, so we’d be delighted if you started to reduce those too.

So, here’s what you have to do …

1. Download the PC School Criteria

Printout this criteria sheet and check how well you meet the criteria. If you are not currently meeting any of the points, make a commitment to try and do so in the future (the near future).

Click to download.

2. Use the guidance sheet to advise your PC efforts

Use this guide to help you make any of the changes you need to make. Strive to go beyond the Plastic Clever guidance if you can – that would be awesome!

3. Tell us about your good work

How do I get these goodies for my school?
