Resources: eco-sustainability toolkit launch

A new online toolkit has launched with the aim of helping early years settings to become more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Ideal if you are searching for a low-cost starting point to turn your setting green.

The Eco Wheel provides resources for educating children, employees, parents and others within the community about climate change, environmentally friendly practices and alternatives. 

Topics featured include:

  • Change management (making transition successful)
  • Single use plastics, including nappies
  • Buildings
  • Energy
  • Food
  • Play resources and equipment
  • Transport and trips
  • Nurturing nature

The toolkit is based around ‘The 8 Rs’ principles:

  • Refuse
  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Repurpose
  • Repair
  • Return
  • Recycle
  • Rethink

An individual setting membership costs £40 per setting, per year. There are tiered discounts for multiple settings (for example, for a group of 10 settings the fee drops to £30). The annual subscription fee funds the update of content.
