Plastic Free Schools

A system shaking, change making, pupil-led education programme. This groundbreaking programme equips and empowers young activists with the tools to create positive, lasting environmental change.


Created to hit key curriculum targets from KS1 – KS3, the five ‘Objectives’ guide students through the plastic free schools process in an easy to understand, purposeful and fun way!

Here at Sustainable Hive we approach topics from a slightly different angle. As teachers ourselves, we know quality resources inspire young people to shift from being merely compliant to positively motivated, change perceptions and encourage memorable, positive interactions.

SH are knowledgeable, thorough, creative and brilliant communicators. They were very adaptable too.
