Learning pack

Plastic waste and its environmental impact

Today, plastic is literally everywhere. It's wrapping our food and used in cosmetics, it piles up on beaches, streets and even in the oceans. Change is urgent - this learning pack shows why.

Plastic is everywhere and has become so much a part of our daily lives that it is hard to imagine how to manage without it. But the sheer volume of the material, coupled with its durability is becoming an ever-increasing problem. Getting rid of it is easier said than done. So how can we avoid it?

Our learning pack "Plastic waste and its environmental impact" provides teachers and students between the age of 12 and 16 with the necessary information to deal with the issue in depth. All materials are available for download and may be used by educational institutions for non-commercial purposes free of charge.

The learning pack includes:

  • 1 booklet
  • 14 picture cards
  • 5 films
  • 3 articles
  • 1 poster  

Please download the booklet (with worksheets and explanatory handouts) first. It contains an overview of all modules and content in the learning pack. You will find a PDF of the booklet under "downloads" further down this page.
