And the eco-brick winning of Uthukela is....
Posted by Phumelelani Primary, South Africa on 3 April 2018

The competition was rife this term as the Water Explorer Schools from the Uthukela region battled it out to build the most eco-bricks. Eco-brick is a wonderfully creative solution to containing waste at schools as a result of chip and sweet papers that cannot ordinarily be recycled. Each class was urged to collect the litter and pack it tightly into 2 litre coke bottle. The winning class will be awarded a BIG BUILD party whereby Bridget and Julia will host a special party with a smorgasbord of delicious treats and of course, our signature Water Explorer cake. After celebrations teams will roll up their sleeves to construct/build something useful from the bricks. Be it a table, stools or a nice garden bench, the possibilities are endless. A big well done to   Gabangemfundo School with 105 eco-bricks, hot on their tails was Phumelelani Primary with 100 eco-bricks and third place goes to Falethu Primary with 80 bricks. A big congratulations to all for their sterling efforts
