Thanks to new funding from WRAP, Waste Watch's team of Cycler robots is joining the Recycle Now campaign in order to engage children, their families and schools in taking action against waste.

Cycler is a unique educational show provided for primary schools interested in environmental education. Cycler has appeared three times on Blue Peter and was awarded a green Blue Peter Badge to celebrate 10 years working in schools.

Cycler the robot is made from recovered waste materials with a tummy made from plastic bottles.

Cycler raps, dances and sings out the 3Rs message of reduce, reuse, recycle, all over England in a fun and interactive partnership with an Education Officer. Every child receives a copy of the Cycler activity book or activity sheet.

Cycler is aimed at children aged 5 to 11 and is available throughout England.
