Circular economy: Redesigning plastics

Circular economy: Redesigning plastics

Plastics have become an integral part of modern life, providing many benefits for consumers and producers. But what happens to our waste plastic? Where does it all end up? Is recycling plastics really that effective? In this lesson, students will explore how we use plastics in everyday packaging and how these might be redesigned in such a way as to not become a ‘waste’ problem. Moving beyond methods to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ at end of life, students will explore ways of designing waste out of the system from the outset. Subjects: Design and Technology, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Business Age range: 12+ Total time: 2x 45 minutes (90 minutes total) Skills: Communication & teamwork, problem solving, creativity & imagination, presenting, scientific inquiry Learning intentions: To deepen awareness of the systemic challenges around plastics packaging and how these might be overcome through redesign.
