The Museum of Design in Plastics at Arts University Bournemouth has been working with Dorset’s Cultural Hub to deliver detective themed lessons about sustainability and eco-plastics.

Schoolchildren are being asked to put their plastic water bottles on the ‘wanted list’ – wanted for recycling that is – just one of the many classroom and museum-based Eco-plastic Detective activities for children being delivered by the team at the Museum of Design in Plastics.

The initiative, which is being supported by Dorset’s Cultural Hub, encourages children to learn about sustainability in plastics and to be curious about the green credentials of plastic packaging.

The programme is made up of three main sessions available to schools including a practical activity with recyclable plastic packaging, a show-and-tell hands on session demonstrating sustainable design in plastics, and a museum-based session exploring MoDiP’s latest exhibition ‘Revolution: environmentally conscious design in plastics’.
