The Eco-Schools Green Flag is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning.

Paid for by Frugi, this British organic kids wear brand is funding 150 schools in the UK to achieve this accredited eco-certification. Schools may be out for summer, but it’s a perfect time for schools to plan this activity for September.

Helping to raise the next generation of eco-warriors, the Eco-Schools global programme empowers kids and teens to take environmental actions to get their school and community involved. Pupils follow a Seven-Step programme that results in achieving an international Eco-Schools Green Flag Certification.

Each year Frugi donates 1 per cent of turnover to charity and has so far donated £720,000 over the past 16 years to help children and environmental non-profit organisations.
