We are Learning Centre HD Ivanka pri Dunaji and we joined the project with a team of 13 HD students and 4 teachers.
According to European statistics, more than 100 billion of plastic bags are used only once, for 20 minutes. An average Slovak uses approximately 466 plastic bags per year. But it takes centuries for the bags to decompose. We want to make a change in our village, Ivanka pri Dunaji. We have decided to use our own abilities to face this challenge.
We came up with an idea of making our own reusable and washable bags! We will use waste material from weddings and parties to make it happen.
The team of 13 young heroes went out to the streets of our village and gave the bags out to 100 people, who agreed to support our project and use our reusable bags instead of plastic bags. The project was a big hit! We hope that we will be able to continue with the project and give out many more reusable nylon bags!
