Frugi has committed to funding a new online Teacher Training Programme as part of its on-going initiative with Eco-Schools, a global charity managed in England by Keep Britain Tidy.
Each year Frugi donates 1% of turnover to charity as part of their Little Clothes BIG Change charity programme and has so far donated £850,000 over the past 17 years to help children and environmental non-profit organisations. Frugi is committed to working with Eco-Schools as part of this initiative.
Frugi’s overall ambition is to help inspire a new generation of eco-heroes to change the world, which makes the Eco-Schools programme, the largest educational programme in the world, an ideal partner. As an extension of its on-going support, Frugi has donated funding for 300 teachers throughout England, from nurseries through to colleges, to attend three immersive sessions of an hour each to learn about the Eco-School programme and how it can benefit their school, pupils, and wider community. Training will be offered to the entire Eco-Schools network with the 300 free spaces allocated on a first come first place saved basis.
Frugi CEO Sarah Clark comments, “Eco-Schools and our new Teacher Training Programme will not only benefit so many more children’s lives, but it helps raise environmental change-makers of the future.”
