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.

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.

Wastebuster also offer Recycling Rewards schemes that enable schools to recycle more and fundraise, to teach children the value of waste as a resource.

Pupils with the 20 most compelling solutions to plastic waste presented their ideas to a panel of political representatives, scientists, NGOs, retailers, educators and leading plastic industry representatives in Parliament on the 16th June at Wastebuster's national Primary Earth Summit.

The panel selected the top ideas for each category which will now be made a reality by Summit supporters  to give schools a range of opportunities to support plastic waste reduction in 2015.
