Our environment’s future lies in little hands
It is incredibly important for us to teach our children from a young age about recycling and sustainability, and the huge role that plays on our future. We are engaging with primary schools, trusts, businesses, individuals, and influencers that are passionate about environmental education and want to support young people learning about waste and sustainability. One of the objectives is for environmental literacy to be integrated more in the curriculum, rather than being an add-on to other subjects. During its pilot phase, we have had a fantastic response and 1000 school children are now Waste Wise Kids!
Giving children the knowledge to make a difference
Encore Environment developed Waste Wise Kids to impart its industry knowledge and expertise on waste and sustainability on the next generation by showing children how easy it is to recycle and repurpose things they don’t want anymore. Children are actively encouraged to think about the waste created at home and school, and ways they can reduce, reuse, repurpose or recycle. Importantly, we encourage children to start asking questions about unnecessary waste – to ‘rethink’ and to ‘refuse’! It is having a hugely positive social impact as the ‘Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle’ message cascades down from schools, to children, parents, businesses and the wider community.
