Waste Wise Kids is a nonprofit organisation delivering an environmental education programme.
It is aimed at primary school children aged from 4 to 12 years old, that works with schools across the UK to help teach children about the impact of waste on our environment.
We provide teachers with the educational program including a presentation with teachers notes, tasks and experiments, competitions and recycled handouts – all in a Waste Wise Kids’ box!
The program teaches children the fundamental waste hierarchy approach, as well as what they can do to help reduce everyday waste. Children are also given the chance to enter into a repurposing rubbish robot competition, where they are asked to create their own waste robot made entirely from items that you would normally throw away at home. The competition actively encourages the children to think about waste, as well as inspire them to make positive choices about waste. It also demonstrates the value of being imaginative by creating something new out of something old. It is so important for us to teach our children from a young age about recycling and sustainability, and the huge role that plays on our future.
With all the learning tools in one place, Waste Wise Kids supports distance learning and it can be delivered at home, as well as in the classroom. Plus, with everyone spending more time at home, Waste Wise Kids provides a fun new way to keep the whole family entertained.
