Saturday, May 31. The Green Ambassadors met on a Saturday and built 2 sets of recycle bins; one at the primary school and one at the secondary school. The net will be used both as a bin and as a transport bag once the bin is full.
Rope is woven around the outside of the net for edge support, then the corners are nailed into posts that have been dug into the ground. That is the primary school principal on the right nailing with a rock.
The finished product with the Green Ambassadors - recycling is happening in Chi Phat. My heart filled with pure pride. One side is for plastic bottles and the other for all other plastic. The plastic bottles may be reused or recycled. We talked about filling them with dirt and making bottle bricks. These can be used to construct any building. They can also be used to make a raft, handy since Chi Phat sits on a river.
Young children stop playing to be the first to pick up litter around the school yard and place material in their new recycle bin. The next feeling that came over me was pure joy.
Several Green Ambassadors show off thier new organizers, one of the perks of becoming a Green Ambassador.
