Welcome to the Teachers' area of the 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 sutainability. 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 acheived 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 your school money!
