Welcome to the Teachers’ area of the Recycle Devon Zone website. Here you will find a wide range of resources to help you embed the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) into both the taught curriculum and everyday school routines.
Learning about ‘rubbish’ is the perfect way to introduce young pupils to environmental sustainability. Having learnt about the issues, every child can take action immediately, both at school and at home. Reducing waste provides a range of opportunities for whole-school campaigns, with easily-achieved and measurable results. While reducing your school’s waste, your pupils will also be preserving biodiversity, conserving valuable natural resources, and saving energy, vital in tackling climate change. You may also save the school money!
