Welcome to


Green up your act brings environmental issues to life through stimulating discussions, engaging presentations and creative hands on workshops for both primary and secondary education. 

We are passionate about our core subjects which are: Recycling and Up-cycling, learning about the world’s diverse and endangered habitats and growing seasonal food.

Over the past eight years we have worked with hundreds of different schools across the UK and as the testimonials demonstrate, our services have proven to be ecologically progressive, educational and fun. All our programmes are tailored to your school’s / college’s requirements and everything made or grown can be taken home to enjoy.

  • The whole school really enjoyed your assembly about the importance of recycling which was made even more interesting when you showed them the items that had been made from recycled material. The pratical activity of recycling newspaper to make a plant pot and planting seedlings was a good hands on activity in which all of our pupils were able to experience success. Many thanks Phil!

  • The workshop was pitched at just the right level for the children. They were interested and engaged. They enjoyed the hands on experience of making the newspaper pots and handling the objects. Thanks for a great workshop!

  • It’s been a real pleasure seeing my child learning about nature. Growing food and working with the seasons is a great opportunity that is sometimes missed living in the city.

  • Our year two children in Hawthorns class had a great time this morning, making pine cone bird feeders which they then hung in the school garden. Phil from Green up your act talked to the children about the changes in autumn and the need for birds to find food over the winter months. We then collected some sunflower heads from the garden which we use to make the feeders. Each child was able to make their own pinecone feeder. Not only did the children enjoy the creative activity, but it help them see the real links between seasonal changes in how and how we help animals in the local environment. Highly Recommended!!        
  • My son started Eco Club at West Hove Junior School this term. He absolutely loves it and is buzzing with information when he comes home. We bought strawberry plants and a planter which are now growing on our patio. Thanks so much for inspiring him to have green fingers!

  •       “A huge ‘thank you’ to Philip Hunton (Green Up Your Act) for providing each and every class in our school with an entertaining and educational workshop for our Eco Day. In keeping with our theme of ‘Recycling Waste‘ the younger children enjoyed the ‘Green Shoots’ activity, finding out about the importance of composting and planting a seed in their own recycled pot. The older pupils had a great time learning all about ‘Upcycling’ and produced a recycled notebook to take home. We will certainly be inviting Philip back in the near future.”
