Time flies when you're doing what you love! June 2020 will mark our third year in our Eco Change Program. The program's overall goal is to motivate people to recycle by providing them with incentives. This year we are heading into one of our local area schools to work with the children to educate them on the problems with single use plastics and their disposal and offer them alternatives, one of which includes making eco-bricks with plastic wastes in exchange for items that they need in their schools, such as waste baskets, books, desks, etc. Last year, among our original Eco-stores, we also worked with an area school to recycle around 250 pounds of plastic wastes into 1,000 eco-bricks and in turn provided waste sorting trash cansfor the children to use to keep their school clean. To date we are about half way to our goal of recycling 5,250 pounds of plastic wastes into eco-bricks which are then used to build rainwater harvesting systems in communities with water scarcity. We want to take this time to thank you for supporting this great project and we hope you will continue to be a part!
