Plastic-Free July Language Lesson

Why this Topic?

A plastic-free July language lesson is such an important class because our oceans are in distress through the impacts of single-use plastic on marine life. What is more, this issue impacts us as the micro-plastics that come from this waste end up in the food chain and eventually in our food. The message of plastic-free July, however, is very positive and empowers us to take action. What is more, in this lesson, learners will create a poster to bring about behaviour change in the people around them. Therefore, this lesson helps empower them to take positive action on this issue.
