Who we are
"The decisions, actions and inactions of one species - ours - over the next decade will determine the fate of all life on Earth."
Wastebuster was the product of a deep concern held by one underwater wildlife camerawoman who was worried by what she saw happening in our world at that time.
Since those days, Wastebuster has grown up to be a national environmental education programme, with education centres and recycling reward programme to engage, inspire and empower children to make sustainable lifestyle choices.
Made to Inspire
Wastebuster offer a uniquely video rich, inspiring waste education programme and multimedia teaching resource designed show how changes in the way we live, play, work, and travel can help us to live happy and healthy lives within the resources available to us. Wastebuster's cross-curricular films, practical activities and resources make sustainable development an exciting part of a school’s curriculum.
Made to Engage
Wastebuster education centres are engaging hubs for schools to enrich and extend teaching beyond the school gates - where practical learning experiences demonstrate how sustainable living can shape the world both now and in the future.
Made to Empower
Wastebuster Recycling Reward (WRR) schemes offer children an opportunity to divert waste from landfill and become healthy, environmentally aware members of the community by exchanging unwanted items for rewards such as sports and gardening equipment, or funds for nominated charities - empowering them to make a difference.
Working in Partnership
Almost all our work involves partnerships. We team up with local non-profit agencies and charities. We form relationships with local councils and regional government offices and waste companies. And critically, we work with businesses who are willing to change.
