Book your classroom workshop today

To help spread the Think Before You Flush message, we have put together educational resources aimed towards kids and young people.

Check out our videos and experiments that will help teach your student or members the issues that arise from flushing the wrong items down the toilet and the positive effect everyone can have by doing simple things like putting a bin the bathroom.

Remember, it’s simple! Only pee, poo and paper should be flushed down the toilet.

Everything else goes in the bin.

Experiments

Experiment: PIPES

Flushing damaging items down the toilet leads to 1000s of blockages in our wastewater networks. With our pipes experiment, you will be able to recreate the disruption these items can cause in our wastewater network.

Experiment: WET WIPE HYPE

Did you know that 90% of wet wipes contain some form of plastic? Flushing wipes down the toilet, even those labelled “flushable”, is the leading cause of blockages & fatbergs in our sewage systems. As a result, Irish Water have to clear 2,000 blockages every month. These wipes not only damage of wastewater network but can pollute our environment.

Get your school to think before they flush

To help protect the environment, we want schools and youth groups to join us in creating awareness about the problem flushing damaging items can cause if they are flushed down the toilet.

Here are some ways for your school to get involved in the campaign:

  • Ensure there are bins in all the toilets at your school or youth group centre.
  • Pledge your schools support to Think Before You Flush and receive posters and flyers.
  • Display the Think Before You Flush infographics in your bathrooms.
  • Get in touch to discuss ideas on how to raise awareness of Think Before You Flush in your school.
