Learning through recycling

By Sarah Riggott | CEO Fly The Phoenix

Children's murals in Guatemala
Children's murals in Guatemala

Part of the curriculum in Guatemala is learning about the damage caused by not throwing trash away correctly and the benefits of recycling.

In Guatemala waste disposal is a big problem. Recycling of waste is done by the trash collectors as part of their waste recycling service but the problem lies in getting the trash to the waste disposal units. Most people, uneducated in the effects of trash on the environment just throw it in the street.

Each year students in our school learn about why it is important to throw trash in the bin, recycle products and save their environment. As part of the activity they go and collect trash, looking and learning about the effects of it as they do. They bring the trash back to school and then learn how to recycle it correctly and use it in the school.

This year, the students saved some of the trash and along with some educational materials of the school, they made murals to represent different problems with throwing trash in the streets. Then, we invited all the parents to come in and look at the murels and recieve a presentation from the whole class on what the problem is and how recycling improves the environment. 

This is such an important topic for the whole community to understand and be educated on. By using our educational materials we could help everyone understand and improve their community.

Thank you.
