The Plastic Bottle Recycling Project


Merilyn and Dorine, Volunteers of @thegreens

Today, @mr-greens, Merilyn and Dorine visited the Ntabessi neigborhood were they collected over 200 plastic bottles which were initially destined for the landfill.

@mr-greens and Merilyn

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.

The Plastic Bottles we collected

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.


The Greens is a grassroots environmental organization that strives to educate, inspire and engage young people to take action to combat climate change and be at the forefront of biodiversity conservation and waste management.

Her tree planting programs have seen the organization create 04 Community Tree Nurseries, planted more than 300,000 trees and together with @kedjom-keku we have acquired 1000 hectares of afromontane forest in Kedjom-Keku Village of the Bamenda Highlands of the North West Region of Cameroon for the creation and conservation of Kedjom-Keku Community Forest

Thanks @tibfox!

This is AWESOME @thegreens. The steady collection-sensitizing-education is the ONLY way. I'm thinking @mr-greens needs one of his 77 days to be a plastic crown made with 7 bottles - cos he is the undisputed KING of Stop Plastic Pollution! Kudos and gratitude.

Sharing this post to the c-squared curation community for you! And to @gogreenbuddy. Cos you deserve and NEED so much more support.

Great project and well done! I also collect garbage around my home and I'm getting crazy when I see people throwing it away.

Keep doing great job! Thank you for sharing and have a lovely week!

That's an amazing initiative you are doing @thegreens. Plastic is one of the major source of pollution by putting it to good use you are really making a difference to your place. Thank you for your valuable contribution to the society.

It's so awesome what dedication can do. You have reminded me I have an unpublished ebook on saving trees and the reasons trees are so important and how people can help. I will for sure add @thegreens and some other steem finds in there too. :))

My inner fire is relit.


Awesome. Can't wait to read the book!
