vRecycle has developed extensive training modules for school students. The most commonly requested is the ‘basic waste awareness’ designed to sensitize, educate and en-power students to make a change.
Basic Waste Awareness Presentation
This waste awareness presentation consists of a number of photographs and videos that engage the students. From the effects of mismanaged waste, to the basics of segregation, composting and recycling. Students are encouraged to start recycling and composting and live props are circulated in the audience for better understanding. A Q&A session or quiz is done at the end of the session.

This is done after the basic presentation usually as a follow up. Advanced topics such as consumerism, planned obsolescence, composting, zero waste are presented and 30 mins are given to discussion.
