As part of the A Rocha Worldwide Family, we have had a number of conferences where we learnt about Plastic Free February Campaigns. This was embraced in AREEP schools and children are now involved in community cleans ups, picking up plastics from their surroundings.
They make the waste into things such as plastic bottle gates, dust bins, door mats, table mats, skipping ropes and drip irrigation bottles for the trees in their schools. This has reduced the amount of plastic in the community and children have been taught the dangers of plastic to life on land and under the water. The Plastic Free Campaigns run throughout the year on a termly basis
