Summer Camp Workshop – Childrens center at Sri Rama Chandra Mission, Madambakkam.
We are proud to say this is one of our big workshop conducted for more than 300 kids on plastic waste management. Mission organized it so well that i was requested to conduct a small workshop for volunteers and then we conducted to the kids. Every thing was arranged for kids before hand and they were very much excited to particiate in the hands on workshop conducted by Upcycle it.
This workshop was a part of three day summer camp where our plastic management workshop fall on day 2. We showed 2 videos to kids first video about how beautiful earth is and second video about how we have ruined it with garbage and how its affecting nature and animals. Kids were so touched by the video and with that impact we conducted a hands on workshop on plastic containers upcycled to a planter.
To make upcycling interesting for kids we mixed craft with it. All the plastic containers which we thow were wrapped with Jute and decorated it with Jute, You can see the pictures in our Gallery. We are so happy to conduct workshop and create awareness among kids and adult, if you would like us to conduct a workshop in your kindly let us know.
Happy Upcycling !!
Plastic water bottle waste can be of many uses from containers to decors to accessories. Here is a jewellery made out of them ..
Plastics has become the most commonly used material in many packaging industries. Its widely used because of its light weight and cost factor. Plastics have become a part of our life and the more we make – the more we use it and the more we discard too. Manufacturers still refuse to avoid plastics and as an end user we buy them without the awareness that they are non-degradable and they harm the environment, oceans and much more.
As an end user we can still be a part of this Green Revolution by upcycling them or reusing them. One way to avoid plastic messing around the environment is by segregating them at our homes and hand it over to the recycling service providers or we can make pretty useful stuffs out of them. Here is a mobile pouch i made with them. Creativity and ideas are limitless and i am sure you all can come up with more interesting ideas with them. Do share your ideas with us by mailing your upcycled product with milk cover to firstname.lastname@example.org or share it with us in Facebook
There is a fast reach among the citizens of Chennai these days as more and more people are taking up green activities. We were recently in the METROZONE apartments for a workshop for kids on sustainability and was surprised to see many kids eagerly waiting to learn crafts and the best part was they were accompanied by parents who were enthusiastically helping their kids during the workshop.
Besides workshop we also conducted quiz’s and games for them to make the experience better. We loved the way kids were working and it was a wonderful experience for Upcycle it. The workshop included products like making box out of paper and plastic. The plastic with which they made the crafts were Mineral water bottles, now they will know how to make better use of them rather than simply throwing it to the trash.
We welcome people to invite us for workshop in your locality too.
We buy a lot of Mineral Bottles and wonder what to do with them. This is one idea how they can be reused and used as Lamp Shades indoor and Outdoor.
