We’ve designed this educational pack with the help of school kids and a cubs pack, so teachers and community group leaders can deliver a fun and engaging session on the environmental impacts of litter and waste very easily and with little prep.
The contents have been successfully tried and tested with KS2 (ages 8-11) and help them really understand:
The resources can easily be delivered in an hour. If you want to, sessions can be made longer by spending more time discussing the facts, designing anti-litter posters or getting out and doing a litter pick.
The resources also include a pledge certificate and some suggestions for the promises kids can make having completed the learning. We’ve given some ideas such as ‘I promise never to drop litter’, ‘I won’t release helium balloons’ or ‘I’ll buy fewer drinks in plastic bottles’. We encourage kids to make these pledges with support of their family to get the discussion going at home too.
We’re always keen to hear your feedback and have now started work on resources for use with older age groups. Watch this space.

What about Dental Floss. A lot of people do flush it,
What I can not understand is why there is not a prolonged campaign on TV as there was before when we had keep Britain tidy there needs to be more education focusing on the young that chucking rubbish on the pavement roads fields is wrong I am dog walker and I walk country lanes I pick what I can but why do people do it we need a national campaign asap
You are spot on, a national full on TV advertising campaign need to be funded directly from the environment budget, perhaps from DEFRA? The ‘environment’ needs to to be on the national curriculum, I am embarrased by our Dirty man of Europe image, I just read this online at Euronews! ‘Welcome to a filthy, littered dump called Britain”
