SCRAPtastic Bottle Planters can be differentiated to suit either KS1 or KS2. In this workshop students design, make and create individual hanging planters from recycled bottles. The workshop highlights the importance of taking little steps to change the world on your own doorstep and is a great hook for empowering students to think about the impact their actions can have on their local environments.

“An excellent, well managed workshop the interactive quiz made recycling relevant to the children. Lots of great ideas to re-use rubbish, the children really enjoyed the practical activity.” Sunning Hill Primary School – Teacher feedback.


A fantastic workshop to explore waste and recycling; it gives real understanding to students as to where our rubbish goes, and how by thinking carefully about individual actions we’re starting to make a difference to our local and global environments.
