  • “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!"

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • "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 assembly 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."

  • 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.

  • The children at Shoreham Beach Primary have loved coming to Eco Club, which has been run by Phil. We are so glad that we are getting the most of our outside wild life area and growing seasonal food. The trip to the Earthship was brilliant and Phil’s knowledge of sustainable materials and processes was enlightening.
