1 Get involvedThe school’s PTA is your best chance to ask teachers if recycling is encouraged in your child’s classroom.
2 Organise an eco fair It’s a great way to get children thinking about green issues and can include demonstrations of recycling techniques. Get local businesses involved, too.
3 Talk to the school governorsFind out how they’re working to make classrooms more energy efficient. Is the school committed to green construction?
4 Walk to school The average distance a child must travel to primary school in the UK is less than 1.5 miles, so set aside a little more time in the morning and walk.
5 Lead by example Make sure you practise what you preach and also that your child’s eco education continues beyond the classroom.
