Unlike some urban schools, we do not have recycling facilities in our area. Thats means that what waste we generate, we have to deal with. In the past, we use to burn our waste until we realise that burning waste, particulary plastic, can sometime cause further damage with the realease of toxic fumes into the air. Many school still burn their waste even if they understand the reprecussions. This year, we looked at how, with a bit of creative flair, we can use our waste to create fun crafts and fashionable cloths. This was part of our recycling efforts. In this picture, children were tasked to design their own stylish outfit out of old newspaper.
