12 Jul Kagay-anons Learn How To Help Mother Earth With EcoBricks
Whenever it rains in the city, we already expect to see flooding in the usual places within the city. But things are surely about change with EcoBricks Philippines who recently conducted a workshop where eco-friendly Kagay-anons learn how to help mother earth with Ecobricks.
So what are Ecobricks?
Ecobricks are alternative reusable building block using bottle “packed solid” with used plastic. And used plastic is something we abundantly have here in the City.
Ecobricks can and have been used as hollow block replacements, floaters, walling, and other creative ways.
It’s really impressive how the little things we already consider as trash after its single usage can actually be made into something we can use to help mother earth with Ecobricks.
And with the recent flooding situation we have (sadly even with lighter rains) finding ways to re-use plastic instead of simply throwing them – where they sadly often end up in the dumps in our creeks causing blockages that results to further flooding problems can really be a big help to our city.
Last Monday (July 9) lucky Kagay-anons were offered a workshop by EcoBricks Philippines, where they learned the proper way of converting used plastic into something useful and how to help mother earth with Ecobricks.
The event was conveniently held at one of our Ech-friendly stores here in Cagayan de Oro City, Eco Store.
Our friends from LunhawPH were spotted joining the event as well, as they proudly showed their first Ecobrick.
This is indeed a great start specially for us Kagay-anons, and I believe with more and more initiatives and advocates like Ecobricks Philippines, we can slowly turn what “we dumped there” into an “instrument of care”.
With less plastic wastes and more awareness, we ourselves can help our current problem with flooding one small scale at a time.
These are the lucky Eco Warriors from the event last Monday (July 9). And there’ll be more for sure as future schedules are already in the makes – given the interest shown by this event.
