Project idea  – Home Recycling Challenge

Have you signed up for the Home Recycling Challenge yet? We’ve linked up with Wastebuster and Recycle Now to highlight this fantastic campaign that not only allows for great exploration of the Waste topic in schools, but also helps to get the messages home to parents and family members – providing the perfect evidence for the Informing and Involving step of Eco-Schools. There are prizes to be won, free resources and seven brilliant films presented by the very funny Captain Busta.
