Plastics are not only bad for the environment, but they are also bad for us. Nonetheless, we use and discard a large number of plastic bottles every day. Most of us do not know how to properly dispose of these plastics. With this, we are knowingly or unknowingly harming the environment. Recycling these plastics is one of the most effective ways to mitigate the damage. Our sponsored children in Mirpur created pots out of plastic bottles for tree planting. We provided some vegetable seeds, so that they can start their vegetable gardens in those recycled bottles.
In our follow up program we found that they took great care of their seeds which has started to bloom. They made organic compost with the help of their mothers. They prepared this compost with vegetable skins, dried tea leaves, and dried egg shells. This compost is very useful for the growth of plants. They were really happy and excited to see their plants grow.
