Always looking for new ways to encourage people to reuse and recycle their plastic wastes into eco-bricks and to draw their attention to the problems associated with single-use plastics, this semester of our eco-brick recycling campaign we headed to a public school in the village of Chimachoy, where students exchanged 1,000 eco-bricks for a set of trash receptacles to help keep their school clean. The trash receptacles allow students to seperate their trash into paper, organic and inorganic trash for better waste disposal. In addition to providing the trash receptacles, this initiative prevented 250 pounds of plastic wastes from being burned and will provide the eco-bricks for almost 1 and a half rainwater harvesting systems. In the future, we hope to continue more outreach in the area schools to work on encouraging and motivating youth to take better care of their communities. We are also working on starting up children's movie afternoons, where local kids will exchange eco-bricks for movie entrance and snacks. We plan to show children's films, such as Wall-E, which will provoke discussion about caring for the environment, as well as will provide children with much needed wholesome entertainment. Your donations make this work possible!
