ReciClaro powered by Jovem Cascais

Environmental education program promoted by Movimento Claro in partnership with Cascais Municipality in schools of Cascais. This project aims to promote awareness towards the excessive usage of single-use plastics and show how the plastic recycling process works by using the Precious Plastic machines.

What’s it about?

Each class has two sessions: one theoretical and one practical.
1) Theoretical session: class with an 1 hour duration where students have the opportunity to learn more about the importance of our oceans for Earth’s life and the dangers plastic pollution and global warming represent to our oceans. In addition, students also learn about the recycling process current situation and tips on how to reduce our carbon footprint.

2) Practical session:
is an 1h30 class with the Precious Plastic machines. Each class is divided in three groups and each group rotates between three different activities, which are:
Activity 1: object creation with Precious Plastic machines
Activity 2: quiz about what was learned in the previous session with prizes
Activity 3: brainstorming session in order to create a 1-minute video about the changes students have implemented in their homes and schools so as to reduce their carbon footprint

Final Event
The closing of the ReciClaro program is done through a final event where the ten best videos made by the students participating in the program are shown.
