Venue : Army Public School, Shankar Vihar, New Delhi
Topic : Marine Plastic pollution and Ecobricks.
The main sources of marine plastic are land-based, from urban and storm runoff, sewer overflows, beach visitors, inadequate waste disposal and management, industrial activities, construction and illegal dumping.Plastic, which is a petroleum product, also contributes to global warming.India consumes about 13 million tonnes of plastic and recycles only about 4 million tonnes.
Ecobricks are part of a solution that enables people to not only clean up their rivers and coastlines, but these once-wasted materials can be used to build things of direct benefit to local communities.
Thanks to Inderjeet Singh sir and Madhukar Varshney for conducting wonderful interactive sessions to the children. The school has decided to use the ecobricks in School at various places.
