Eco Teaching Ideas

Some see rubbish - others see a canvas!

The big idea behind Eco ESL is encouraging teachers to reduce, reuse, and recycle when it comes to teaching resources. Why trash when you can create?!

When we stop and think about what we throw out to landfill or recycling, it is incredible to realise how much potential there is.

That empty toothpaste box - versatile cardboard!

A finished juice bottle - a perfect pen holder! 

Those socks with holes everywhere - finger puppet fun!

Once you start seeing rubbish differently, the potentials to upcycle become endless. Reduce your environmental impact, increase your DIY creativity, and minimise your budget all at once. Eco ESL is here to get you started!


Eco Materials

When creating teaching resources, my first thought is to use what is already around. Check the recycling bin - there are so many treasures in here!

 From cardboard to plastic, we throw out so much that can be upcycled and given a second purpose. 

 Instead of buying up at stores and investing in premade goods, get creative and DIY. This is better for your budget and better for the planet!
