Are you concerned about the environment? Have you seen the program on The War on Plastic? Did it make you think? It definitely did me, there were even a few tears, especially when you look at where we live surrounded by water and beauty. What if this disaster happended to our coastlines how would you feel about it? There has been so many posts on facebook this summer showing the rubbish that has been left on our beautiful beaches and it's heart breaking. The amount of single use plastics that are being used today is phenomenal and most of it cant even go into our homebased recycling bins!!! what's that all about. Did you also know that a very snmall percentage of our home based bin recycling actually get recycled? the rest either ends up in landfill, is shipped away to cause the problems we are seeing today or burned! Either way it is poluting our environment and our own bodies too!
So i decided to do something about it! I am now a qualified GEA Trainer and I want to create a community within the Live Laugh Ladies Club to make a difference, this is also a great activity to do whilst you are sat in front of the TV know ing you are making a difference to the planet , but its also great fun to do especially the children and grandchildren. I will also show you how once these ecobricks have been made, what they can be used for and how we can help our communties by doing projects to make good use of them.
if you wish to take part you will need to bring with you:
A small plastic bottle 330ml i.e coke, sprite, lucozade or water

A carrier bag of your clean washed cut up single use non recyable plastic
A pokey stick i.e wooden spoon, bamboo cane or chopstick (Earth wands will be provided but a limited amount)
