Learning doesn’t have to stop outside of the classroom… Here are some of our favourite resources to explore some educational tools, curriculums and lessons on plastic pollution and the marine environment!


Young Citizens

Explore the importance of the oceans and the impact that plastic pollution is having on marine ecosystems with our free classroom resources aimed at KS2 pupils. 

The resource is split into three parts: 

  • Part 1: The ocean and plastic
  • Part 2: The problem with plastic
  • Part 3: Saving the world


Protect Blue

Our environmental education curriculum is based on seven core themes, and underpinned by design thinking and the values that we learn by spending time in nature. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure curriculum : It can be implemented as a year long program or a flexible learning platform with a focus on experiential learning & outdoor education.


Kids Against Plastic

Before we can expect anyone to protect the natural world, we need help them learn to love it first. Ideally, that would be done through first-hand experiences, but for obvious reasons that can be quite tricky! We’ve compiled a load of visual resources that will hopefully help you bring the ocean, and some of it’s glorious inhabitants, into your classroom or onto your screen. Where possible, we’ve tried to make the resources downloadable – so you can use them more flexibly. We’ve also bundled up some resources for your convenience.
