Green Up Your Act brings environmental issues to life through stimulating discussions, engaging presentations, and creative workshops for both primary and secondary education.

Over the past ten years, we have worked with hundreds of different schools and colleges across the UK. We are passionate about all things sustainable: recycling, up-cycling, global/local biodiversity, endangered species & their habitats, and the growing of seasonal food.

  • Thank you so much. The children were buzzing with excitement on our return about bottle walls wind turbines and allotments!

  • Thank you so much for a wonderful eco-day here at Trull School. You arrived well-prepared, were calm and patient with our children and the information you taught them was relevant and interesting. The workshops you undertook with our KS2 children were excellent. The staff and children were all talking about the up-cycled notebooks you made with them, and they were able to learn whilst getting involved with a hands-on project that opened up so many more opportunities for them. I would recommend you and your company to any school looking to enhance their work around the environment, and would not hesitate to invite you back to our school.

  • "Thank you very much for coming in and working so hard with our young children! They all had a great day and we will do our best to build on the enthusiasm the children have for seasonal food gardening!"
    Sally OverendSt Thomas Primary School
  • We really enjoyed our workshop with Philip Hunton it was thought provoking. The students were engaged to think about, food waste, packaging nutrition, and global perspective. They thoroughly enjoyed the workshop this will be a good reminder for them to think green.

  • A lovely hands on workshop. The concept was brilliant and your collection of recycled artefacts were great. The links with the globe were ideal for early years as they can identify with this. The making of the pots was a wonderful idea and we are looking forward to having Philip back for more workshops.

  • “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!
    Gaynor HopeNelson Primary School
  • 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.
  • “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!"

  • Wonderful and informative and inspirational way for kids to have fun! Rafferty is still telling everyone about his orange juice carton wallet!
