Exciting Way of Managing Plastic Wastes

Written by CorpsAfrica/Malawi Volunteer Ms. Mildred Chirwa

I volunteer at a local secondary school in my community and as the form four graduation was fast approaching I was approached to take care of the decoration for the event. Coming together with the GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) Club, we made decoration items for the event from waste plastic bottles and pieces of chitenje.

It was fun doing this with the girls and they were very excited to learn some skills on how they can reuse waste plastics in their community. Most of the girls showed interest in making artistic items from plastic waste and I shared some videos on this topic with them. I believe this will be a fun way of managing the problem of poor plastic waste management in my community and surrounding areas.
