We have all the tools campuses will need to begin breaking free from plastic.
The foundation of any plastic-free campaign will be an informed school community. Break Free From Plastic has created this Plastics Education Manual, which includes a curriculum map to help teachers design lesson plans for any grade level, adapt modules to existing classes, and provide lessons for homeschooling.
These manuals are specifically designed to jumpstart your plastic-free journey locally. Crafted from existing practices and tools of plastic-free campuses worldwide, these steps have been adapted to better fit schools in the Global South. As nations plan their transitions into a new normal, it is now more important to pause and plan for a better society that is plastic-free.
