Reverse Garbage was started by educators for educators almost 50 years ago with the aim of reducing landfill through creative reuse. We have a professional development option to suit your needs and budget.
We believe passionately that real change will come through the education of children who will make living more sustainably a part of their lives. A primary aged child now will be making important decisions regarding sustainability in the workplace in just 10 years time.
Our range of Professional Development programs aim to give educators the knowledge, skills, tips, tricks and confidence they need to make sustainable thinking and creative approaches part of their everyday practice so that they can model and share a more sustainable practices.
