Bincentives

Developed from an idea by Hampton High School in London, winners of the Marine Conservation Society's CSI Litter Challenge project, this student-led campaign aims to reduce littering and promote positive behaviour. Comprising an editable assembly presentation, teacher's notes, emoji themed posters and reward tokens, Bincentives centres around positive reinforcement of anti-littering behaviour. Students who use a bin or recycle their waste are rewarded with tokens which are collected towards a series of school defined incentives. The campaign can be adapted to the individual setting and requires minimal teacher intervention so would be perfect for a class, school council or eco group.
