We have equipment for schools undertaking clean-up campaigns, schoolbooks for integrating the environment across the primary curriculum, and free campaign support from Eco Star badges to poster competitions!

We often feature schools and campaigns in our News section of this website, so have a good read and let us know if you have something you'd like us to feature!

A little help from our friends...

There are two characters who help children associate with and learn about the environment, Picker-Lilly the Eco Angel, and Neville the Eco Devil.

Picker-Lilly and Neville are featured throughout the interactive tools and schoolbooks.

Picker-Lilly, as seen on the left, provides pupils with ideas and support in their efforts to preserve and protect the planet, and is always trying to educate Neville the Eco Devil away from his bad eco ways such as dropping litter or not recycling.

To achieve environmental goals by running successful and sustainable clean-up campaigns, we unquestionably need the appropriate funding to make it all happen.

There are many funding routes already available, and new grants are frequently released. You will find that even though there are various funding titles and sources - through charitable trusts, lottery or local government for example - many can be applicable to clean-up campaigns. Good news for everyone!

It’s knowing where to find such grants, as well as how to apply for them, that can be the tricky part – and that’s where we come in!

Running a clean-up campaign and need that extra bit of money to make it as successful as possible?
Contact our Environment Team, they would be happy to help and point you in the right direction, or visit our Previous Environmental Funding News article for ideas!
