What’s learnt in the cradle lasts to the grave

It’s never too early to start dealing sustainably with waste. So why not at school? Good sorting is the perfect place to start, because this is the easiest way to make a good contribution to a more sustainable society. What’s more, children and pupils take the good habits they have learnt at school home with them.

Fost Plus helps your school sort successfully

Fost Plus has developed a wide range of services for schools. With our educational workshops and lesson packages, we make pupils aware of the importance of good sorting and a sustainable approach to waste. We have a range suited to various age groups and in line with broader teaching goals. In addition, via the intermunicipal companies for household waste we also offer schools free rubbish bins for paper-cardboard and PMD as well as a range of communication material.
