The Coronation of His Majesty, The King will take place on Saturday 6th May 2023.  King Charles III wants to protect the planet for future generations – a passion he has voiced for many years as the Prince of Wales. He has a long history of environmental activism and developing initiatives to help climate change. We love our green King!

At Waste Wise Kids, we thought the best way to mark the occasion would be to create your very own Royal eco-Crown made out of things that would normally go in the bin! You can then wear them in celebration on the special day!

If you are aged between 2 -12 years old, Waste Wise Kids is giving you the chance to win amazing ‘Royal Collection’ prizes.

  • Coronation Spencer Teddy Bear
  • The Coronation of his Majesty King Charles III 2023 uncirculated coin
  • King Charles III children’s book

Winners will also receive a Waste Wise Kids badge and a personalised Waste Wise Kids certificate! There will be three winners – one from each age group: 2-4 years, 5-7 years, and 8-12 years old.

How to enter

Combine celebrations with conservation and creativity to make your Royal eco-Crown out of reused, recycled and repurposed items! Think cardboard boxes, magazine pages, wool, plastic containers, discarded foil for bling, and even broken jewellery! You can even use your imaginations and inspiration from the natural world to create a crown fit for Royalty!

We are looking for the most creative eco-Crowns in the Kingdom!! Please make sure you have an adult present to help you with any cutting!
