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.

As our feedback demonstrates, our services have proven to be ecologically progressive, educational and fun.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • “Green up your act helped out at the Dalrymple Primary School  during our Eco Week. Philip delivered an exciting “Green Shoots” workshop to the lower primary ages, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of the children. He pitched the lesson well to suit the different needs and abilities, and the children especially enjoyed making their own paper pot with a seedling to take home. The upper school enjoyed looking at different objects made from recycled materials and then were guided through a craft activity, where they had a chance to make their own recycled notebook. Philip’s expertise has contributed towards making our Eco Week a huge success! Many thanks to Green Up Your Act.”
    Lauren Mc Nair Dalrymple Primary school – Scotland
  • 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 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.

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

  • 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.

  • I just wanted to say thank you again for the two days you spent with us. The girls really enjoyed their Up-cycling Workshops and have been inspired to look at waste in a different light. Several are already designing products to make out of rubbish. I feel it will really make a difference to the amount of waste we throw away as a school.
