Recon resource

The Recon Young Co-operatives model enables students to set up and run an enterprise focusing on waste management and the three ‘R’s of ‘reduce’, ‘reuse’ and ‘recycle’. The accompanying Recon pack, which is now available to download from, provides practical, step-by-step manufacturing guides, such as how to make jewellery and paper from waste.

The resource is packed with background on waste and recycling, containing fact sheets on landfills as well as detailing the processes for making everyday materials such as cotton and steel. There are also case studies and ideas for classroom activities, from setting up a wormery to holding a newspaper fashion show, and detailed, step-by-step manufacturing guides.
