We need you! Every school – whether in a town, city or on the coast - has some kind of relationship with plastic. It might be a problem with litter, or with vending machines, packed lunches, disposable bottles or just laminating.
Even if your school doesn’t have a litter problem there are still things you can do tackle plastic pollution by preventing it. The less plastic your school produces the less it has to send to landfill or recycling.
Here at the 2 Minute Foundation we believe that every action matters and that every positive action adds up to make a big difference.
Schools that come together to make changes have the power to do so much more than just clearing up their own community and making it greener. They act as a beacon for good practice, can offer the benefit of their collective experience to others and can inspire other schools to act themselves.
And it all starts with 2 minutes.
You can also get involved with our 2 Minute family (and being greener in general) in other ways. They will take a lot of effort to do, but can be really fruitful and really help to enhance your sense of community.
Our 2 Minute Guide To Reducing Waste will help you to reduce your waste, reduce the burden on the recycling and waste systems and send a message to polluters that you don’t want their stuff. Each idea is a #2minutesolution that won’t take too long but will add up to make a big difference.
The Guardian Angels (GA’s) are vital to our development. As a network of volunteers they will become our local representatives on the ground, with each of them responsible for stations within their patch. Each GA will oversee between 5 and 10 stations, depending on their location.
Guardian Angels will also monitor how stations are being used, ensuring that the stations are situated in the best position and that litter picking bags are available. They will also be on hand to give talks to local schools, community groups and public events, to raise awareness of all things #2Minute.
