What the teaching resources cover

 The aim of the resources is to help pupils understand:

  • The waste hierarchy and the three Rs (reduce, reuse, and recycle). Recycling as much as possible is fantastic, but is always better to reduce the waste we produce wherever possible. The waste hierarchy ranks waste management options according to what is best for the environment. Find out more about the waste hierarchy.
  • Recycling – Why is it important and what can be recycled
  • The need to be an environmental champion and tell others about why it’s good to reduce waste and recycle

Make the materials relevant
