Sustainability Foundations: Ready to Recycle

Theo wants to do the right thing for the environment. Pupils join him as he explores why recycling is a good choice, the best way to clean up after a party, and how to make sustainable choices when choosing school supplies.

Ready to Recycle comprises three lessons, each centred around an engaging online learning module. The content has been developed with teachers and subject matter experts and links to PSHE, Geography and Science, and equivalent subjects.
