The quality of the uniform is fantastic, my 3 year old son wears the trousers, he is very active, always climbing, falling over and getting himself filthy, the trousers are still as good as new. They wash brilliantly even on a 15 degree wash.

Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children and nearly 1.5 million teachers across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.

Since 1994, Eco-Schools England has been empowering students to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the same simple Seven Step process that has been used successfully across the world. Their student-led programme involves hands-on, real-world learning, motivating the whole school and the wider community to take part in exciting environmental projects based on their nine Eco-Schools topics.

If you are not yet an Eco school and are interested in knowing more about it and how you can become one, visit eco-schools.org.uk

For those who are already an Eco school, we hope you’re progressing well through the awards and continuing to engage your school community in all the different topic areas.

Can we help?

  • Lesson resources – we have worked with Eco Schools England and curriculum advisors to produce specific lesson ideas around plastic bottle recycling /waste and school uniform. Click here to find them:
    • number 19 for key stage 2
    • number 18 for Key stage 3
  • Material for lessons – if you require any materials to support your lesson, get in touch by emailing us at sales@davidluke.com

Schools are now recognising that our Eco-uniform is a more tangible way of teaching pupils about waste recycling and encouraging social responsibility.

What Eco Schools England have to say…

“Keep Britain Tidy is excited to be working in partnership with David Luke and their eco-uniform range, which uses less energy to produce than a standard blazer and is helping to reduce landfill of waste plastic drinking bottles. Via our Eco-Schools programme, we’re looking forward to highlighting this practical demonstration of the link between improving the environment and the impact on education.”

Phil Barton, Chief Executive, Keep Britain Tidy.

We need to do more to prevent waste to landfill. Supporting markets for recycled products is important.
