Powerful Plastics: What’s it all about?

EcoACTIVE has joined forces with the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) to improve levels of plastic recycling across 6 North London Boroughs; Barnet, Camden, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest.

Recycling helps your council by reducing the cost of waste disposal and generating materials that can be sold to manufacturers- increasing the money available for other council services. More importantly, REDUCING, REUSING & RECYCLING our plastic waste will help to protect our planet from plastic pollution.

EcoACTIVE School Support and Recycling Competition!

Selected schools have taken part in the Powerful Plastics challenge, in order to improve recycling levels in their wards. With the support of ecoACTIVE through staff training, lesson plans, resources and a school assembly; the school community were able to learn which plastic items can be recycled . For 3 weeks, the schools competed to become the North London plastic recycling champs! Pupils were responsible for checking the recycling, weighing it at the end of the week and sharing the results with ecoACTIVE. Results have been shared on our leader board each week- check it out now to see the final results!

Get Creative… 

Meet our plastic turtle at a Plastic Roadshow coming soon!

Many schools also showed us some fantastic reusing by entering artwork made from unwanted plastic into our ART COMPETITION! The winning school will be announced in the new term. At ecoACTIVE, we love to get creative, so we had a go at creating our own plastic artwork! We made a turtle from old plastic bottles, bubble wrap, carrier bags, CDs and yoghurt pots. Plastic can be a real problem for wildlife if it ends up as litter. Create your own plastic wildlife and pledge to make a cleaner, greener planet for the amazing creatures we share it with!
