March 2012: Separating garbage

31 Mar

Garbage is a quite big problem in Cambodia. There is more and more plastic garbage, and usually, everything ends up in the same garbage bin. This makes it really difficult for the recycling people who collect cans, plastic bottles and many plastic cups that are used for every single sweet drink the children buy.

So, we decided to become one of the first places with garbage separation in Cambodia. Four garbage bins in different colours have been „decorated“ with paper, plastic cups and bottles, leaves for biodegradable garbage, and plastic bags for the rest of the garbage. It looks really beautiful and makes it very clear for the children which bin to use for what type of garbage.

Lungdy explained to the children how to use the garbage bins, but also explained about the importance of trying to reduce garbage. The children love to put their garbage into the right bin now!
