With COP26 being held in Scotland this year, we are all keen to do more and help the planet this autumn. Scottish Book Trust has worked with Sustainable Kirriemuir(this will open in a new window) to create a resource pack full of ideas to help you be sustainable and make a difference.
The activities are inspired by Jess French's book What a Waste, but are flexible and perfect for using with any environmental book or project. Activities included in the resource are:
- Run a litter picking survey
- Write a letter to a politician or company
- Find out more about palm oil and how many products it is in
The resource pack also contains worksheets for you to download and print to help you with these activities. The worksheets available are:
- Litter picking survey log sheet
- Formal letter template (to use as writing guide)
- Formal letter template (to fill in)
- Palm oil products log sheet
