Become the Voice!
We have been lucky to have worked with so many amazing schools and pupils through our art outreach projects. We would love our free resources to continue to be used and shared by children, so they can help spread the message of how we can all help stop plastic pollution.
Project Gloop Schools Resources
Gloop resources include an assembly and a series of cross-curricular lessons based around our short film ‘Gloop’.
