Recycling and reusing have become buzzwords in today’s environmentally aware generation. Aman Setu,Madhavi Kapur’s new school in Wagholi,under its ecology teacher Saurabh,has been constantly experimenting with eco friendly methods of construction. This time the school is planning to build a wall for the office using recycled soft drink bottles. They plan to use 1.5 litre Coke,Pepsi,Sprite and 7up bottles for the construction of the wall. They need a few thousand bottles so please keep the ones you use and discard so effortlessly and instead send them to the school so they can recycle them for the construction of the wall.
