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?
