Children up and down the country will be given a hands-on role in challenging the confusion around what can and cannot be recycled as part of a ground-breaking environmental audit with Keep Britain Tidy.
Over 20,000 schools will be taking part in the project through the environmental charity’s Eco Schools programme.
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme in the world.
The Eco-Schools Programme is pupil-led, involving hands-on learning that gets the whole school and the wider community involved in exciting environmental projects.
Schools are provided with free resources to help them progress to the international Eco-Schools Green Flag award within 12 months of registration and Keep Britain Tidy provides additional assistance from a dedicated team of former teachers.
