The Plastic Bottle Recycling Project
Today, @mr-greens, Merilyn and Dorine visited the Ntabessi neigborhood were they collected over 200 plastic bottles which were initially destined for the landfill.
During their collection, they were able to sensitize memebers of the community to #StopPlasticPollution and among the community members was Mrs. Shey Julius who pledged to reduce her plastic bottles footprint as well as donate all her plastic bottles to @thegreens.
These plastic bottles will be upcycled next week to produce the UPB Tree Nursery Pots which will be used to nurse 100,000 Trees this year, as part of @TheGreens' One Million Trees Project.
