Premier League and Sky to provide resources for primary schoolchildren to learn about single-use plastics

The Premier League and Sky’s campaign to raise awareness of the environmental impact of single-use plastic will go beyond Premier League clubs and their fans.

The two organisations will also work together to educate schoolchildren about how to cut down on their usage of single-use plastics.

Through the Premier League Primary Stars programme, which reaches 15,000 primary schools in England and Wales, children will be able to learn about what it means to be single-use plastic free.

Using fun games and challenges, they will learn how they can make a difference and educate their parents in the process.

Kids from Weston Park Primary School in Haringey, north London, got an early insight this week as to how to "pass on plastic" with a visit by Isaac Nartey, from Sky's Ocean Rescue team.

Nartey was joined by Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League Primary Stars coach, Jake Norman, and club ambassador Gary Mabbutt, and told of how eight million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans every year.
