This engaging lesson plan contains a learning outcome, success criteria, pre-lesson preparation, resources, learning sequences and a conclusion.

After introducing the topic of reducing waste, the teacher will discuss why we need to reduce the size of landfills and ask students to work through a 'KWL' chart on how to reduce waste. In the final task student will get creative and make a variety of products to promote shopping with an "eco-bag".
