Eco Warriors is a free environmental scheme designed by the MK Council Environment and Waste team to encourage children, schools and staff to recycle more and raise awareness of environmental issues, such as reducing single use plastics and water consumption.
The activities are suitable when working in classroom bubbles, socially distanced or at home. The booklets are also suitable for Home Educated students.
