In partnership with Kids Against Plastic, Common Seas runs the Plastic Clever Schools award, helping young people radically reduce plastic waste in their schools, communities, and future. We provide teachers and young people with everything they need to take part via our toolkits and online platform.
There are three steps to becoming a Plastic Clever School:
To achieve the Plastic Clever Award, schools share their achievements from each stage of their journey and join a nationwide community of teachers and young people tackling plastic waste, while reducing the nation’s carbon budget.

Ocean Plastics Education was developed using UNESCO’s education framework and in close partnership with award-winning education specialists, subject associations, exam boards, universities, educators, students, and industry experts.
Developed to align with the UK National Curriculum and can be adapted and replicated in other countries around the world – particularly those working to achieve the UN’s SDGs.
We partner with governments to help them measure and quickly reduce their countries’ plastic pollution.
Measuring and reporting on plastics emissions is critical to solving the plastic crisis.
We brought together local government, business and community groups in Greece to deliver reduce and reuse projects. We’re now scaling the most successful of these projects to an international audience.
We worked with local mothers and seamstresses to clean up rivers in Indonesia by designing an affordable and functional reusable diaper. After a pilot that proves viability, we’re seeking impact investment to scale this project country-wide.
