Try at Home: Single Use Plastic Activity

At Bathgate Early Years Centre we are a proud Eco School and through our work at BEYC we like to look after the environment in whatever way we can. Can you take part in the activity below from Keep Scotland Beautiful?

 Go around your home looking at products that are made of or packaged in plastic that will be only useful during the life of the product. That is what is called ‘single-use plastic’. Examples of this are toothpaste tubs, plastic toothbrushes and yogurt pots. Count how many different types of single-use plastic products or containers can you find at home.
