 You’re Registered!

Thank you for registering on our Plastic Clever School initiative! Yay, it’s great to have you onboard!

What now?

With registration completed, you are now ready for Stage 2 – Raising Awareness.

Stage 2 is all about making as many people as possible aware of the issues associated with single-use plastic, whether it’s drinks bottles, cutlery or straws – it doesn’t matter! The important thing is you get people talking about disposable plastic and how much they use.

So, get your pupils finding out about plastic pollution, and then sharing their findings with others. This could be through assemblies, Show and Tell, presentations, or through making posters and displaying them around your school. There are no set rules; all we ask is that you send us some photographs of some of the work you’ve done to raise awareness.
