  • “Working with Green Up Your Act has been a great experience. From the first point of contact Philip was enthusiastic about our school’s 'Go-Green' work and had great ideas to help make it a successful project. The whole school, children and teachers alike, loved the assembly and it left us full of enthusiasm and the children who made up-cycled items had a great time. The up-cyling workshops were accessible to all children and they are using what they made and really proud that they have recycled. We look forward to working with Green Up Your Act again in the future.”

  • 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!

  • The activities linked to the ideas and kept the children interested and on task by breaking them down into small manageable steps. The pupils all have a lovely keepsake to take home from the experience. The activities and slides you chose were appropriate to ability and you delivered the lessons at the right pitch, the children were interested and engaged and you made sure they understood. The two days were a success and made the pupils think about recycling and wider issues.
  • "Wonderful and informative and inspirational way for kids to have fun! Rafferty is still telling everyone about his orange juice carton wallet!"
  • "Many thanks for all your workshops today – the children really loved them, and it got across some simple but important messages. It was a great addition to our Eco Day!"

  • Pupils benefitted from being able to handle a range of items made from recycled materials and discuss what they were made from and how they had been made. The workshops were fun and accessible to everyone as they were appropriately paced and the demonstration was easy to follow. Pupils came away with objects they had made to take home, knowledge they can apply in future projects and a greater understanding of re-using waste materials to make useful items.
  • Thank you so much for today. The kids reported back very positively to their classes and were very proud of their wallets. I think everyone was suitably impressed by the Earthship ideal and we’re looking forward to telling the whole school about it in our energy assembly and asking the right questions about our new sustainable school building. We have a lot to think about in school now and I know what they learned today will give them a confident start to making an energy plan and putting it into action.

  • “Our Eco day was a thoroughly enjoyable day for all the girls at Streatham and Clapham. We were really lucky to have the company Green Up Your Act come in to carry out some fantastic workshops that encouraged the girls to think about the environment, and supply them with ideas on how to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle at home and school. The workshops were educational, hands on and lots of fun! The up-cycled juice cartons were a particular favourite. They were quick and easy to make and certainly sturdy enough to start using at break time for the tuck shop!"
