How do we do it?
Download the schools pack and supporting materials, which contain all the resources you need:
- Send the letter and tips to parents
- Put up the posters around school
- Talk to your kitchen or canteen about how they can help
- To turn your Zero Waste Lunch into a learning activity or Eco-Schools project, measure your lunch waste on a normal day and at you Zero Waste Lunch. Use the recording sheet to compare the difference
(Includes welcome letter, how to guide, suggested letter and sms)
We have also provided you with two downloadable posters to help you get the message out there.
You can also share your achievements with us via our social media channels by tagging us (see below) and by using the following hashtags – #plasticfreeday #zerowastelunch #litterfreecoastandsea
Send in your Achievement Form and we’ll send you your certificate and mention you on our Plastic Free Wall of Fame.
What counts as single-use plastic?
Count any plastic that won’t be used again, whether or not it could be recycled. This will include shrink wrap, cling film, biscuit wrappers, crisp packets, straws, yogurt pots or disposable cutlery.
Don’t count plastic tubs, pots, bottles, bags or cutlery that will be washed and reused.
