As we all know that environment plays an important role in healthy and balanced living as well as existence on planet earth. But with the advent of technology and more comfort creating products, various adversities and pollutants are seen to be affecting the ecological system in today’s time. One of the major pollutants these days is PLASTIC.
Plastic is used by the entire world on a gigantic scale. The detrimental side to the usage of plastic has ultimately dawned upon us. The toxic effects of plastic are so farfetched that no biodiversity is left plastic –free today .Due to its synthetic nature, plastic is practically non – biodegradable, which makes it perfect for its use in water –resistant products.
To create awareness about Plastic Pollution and its harmful effects and the simplest yet powerful solution “Ecobricks” online session given to Students of GD Goenka Public School Dwarka (New Delhi) on 4th Sept 2021.
The students participated very well and motivated to make ecobricks at home using MLP (Multilayer plastic) and Single use plastic thrown to garbage. We are very well aware that once this plastic is mixed with other waste- it is next to impossible to FIX the problem and it will defiantly reach to either landfills or Oceans to create nuisance. More that 80 students participated in the online interactive session.
History of Ecobrick?
Ecobricks were first made in number and utilized on a community scale in Guatemala in 2003 with Susana Heisse’s project Pura Vida Atitlan. Since then numerous projects have been started all around the globe.
What is an Ecobrick?
An Ecobrick is a plastic bottle filled, and packed tightly with none recyclable materials so that it can be used as a building block for a structure. Pretty much becoming a brick, made of plastic.
We thanks to Principal Ms Anita Khosla and Mrs Jyotika Jakhar for arranging the wonderful session for the school students.
