Make Every School A Plastic Recycling Center

Story

Please visit www.aksharfoundation.org to learn more.

At Akshar Forum, students pay their
“school fees” with plastic packets from home.



The plastic is processed at the school Recycling Center, which employs at-risk teens after school to help them earn enough money to stay in school.



20-40 packets of plastic are compressed into a single water bottle to form a sturdy Eco-brick.



This small tree planter below was built with approximately 200 bottles and 4,000 packets of plastic, that otherwise would have been burned or dumped in a stream, river, or lake.



Akshar is developing a scalable Recycling Center model that can be replicated in schools throughout India to end the menace of plastic pollution. Will you join us?
