Plastic objects that we use once and discard, or single-use plastics, are a growing critical problem of global proportion. That’s why Earth Day Network is focused on Ending Plastic Pollution. The resources below are designed to help you educate, inspire and organize your students to take action.
This year’s Climate Education Week Toolkit is a web-based, cross-disciplinary resource that includes a range of lesson plans and educational activities focused on the issue of Plastic Pollution. You can organize a Climate Education Week throughout 2018 and beyond.
Earth Day Network’s higher education campaign, MobilizeU, is an international movement of concerned and active students and administrators uniting around their common interest of environmental action in support of a sustainable future for all.
Our friends at Eco Boys and Girls helped us to create these amazing posters to reach our youngest environmental heroes. Eco Boys and Girls, with Ray Recycle leading the way, promote End Plastic Pollution. Their mission is to engage youth and families around the world to be aware of, involved with and connected to each other, the environment and their world. Eco Boys and Girls empower children to learn about the their planet, take ownership of their environment and explore creative new ways to live in harmony. Partnered with the world’s leading institutions in education, science and the environment, and through public service announcements, curriculum, activities events and books, their focus is bringing STEAM, SDG and Pluralism quality, entertaining education to children everywhere.
