Eco-Boot Camp

Welcome to the Wastebuster Website

The Intergalactic Wastebuster Federation has listed Earth on the endangered planet list and so Captain Busta and Lieutenant Pong have bravely gone where no space monkey and fur ball have been before...to Earth. To recruit an army of children to bust waste, conserve resources and secure a sustainable future.

Wastebuster aims to empower children to reduce waste in school and take their learning out of the classroom and into their home, community and the wider world.

Wastebuster activity counts towards all levels of Eco-Schools award. So, by joining Busta and Pong on their waste busting mission, schools can also work towards waving the Bronze, Silver and even the prestigious Green Eco-Schools Flag


Busta's Sunflower

The programme offers a video rich, multimedia teaching resource with cross-curricular films, practical activities and resources to make Wastebusting an exciting part of the curriculum.

Dive in the bin and get your hands dirty!

Or first meet Captain Busta and Lieutenant Pong in theirs...
