Welcome to the Teachers Bin
Lessons and activities
Head to the Resources area to find the video and picture library, helpful info on waste, an eco-directory, and searchable teaching resource database.
The Kids Bin is also a great resource for introducing all types of waste and recycling in the classroom - with learning tools, films, games, waste saving missions and bundles of creative things for eco-teams to make and do.
Wastebusting in schools
The Wastebusting in Schools area is designed to help you make a difference in the amount of waste your school is generating.
Whether you're just starting out, or if your school is greener than green, there should be some helpful ideas, tools and resources here for you.
Head to the case studies area to find out about schools who have become more sustainable by using Wastebuster resources - from reducing waste to achieve a prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag award, to fundraising with Wastebuster Recycling Reward programmes - this is a great place for ideas and inspiration.
Head to the Recycling Rewards area to find out how you can teach children the value of waste as a resource and recycle with Wastebuster to fundraise for your school or favourite charity.
“Education for sustainable development enables people to develop the knowledge, values and skills to participate in decisions about the way we do things individually and collectively, both locally and globally, that will improve the quality of life now, without damaging the planet for the future.”
The English National Curriculum, QCA
“Education for Sustainable Development is an emerging but dynamic concept that encompasses a new vision of education that seeks to empower people of all ages to assume responsibility for creating a sustainable future.”
“Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) motivates, equips and involves individuals and social groups in reflecting on how we currently live and work, in making informed decisions and creating ways to work towards a more sustainable world. ESD is about learning for change.”
