EcoACTIVE are running in partnership with NLWA (North London Waste Authority) to deliver long term waste prevention projects in 14 schools across north London.

With this project we moved away from the typical types of rubbish that schools focused on, and instead looked at Food Waste, Textile Waste and WEEE Waste (electrical and electronic waste).

Each school decided on their own focus, and several projects included a variety of pupil-led ideas. The project included pupil workshops, assemblies, staff INSETs, family events and parent roadshows.
