HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Youth-led initiatives help make changes that are long-term and sustainable. You have the power to make a difference!

DESCRIPTION

Our mission is to empower communities to leap into the future of clean energy.

Design and build planters out of plastic water bottles as a way to combat plastic pollution and waste. Utilize resources available at home, or would otherwise be considered waste, to create a purpose for a plastic bottle, as opposed to dumping into a landfill.


ITEMS NEEDED

  • plastic bottle
  • tape
  • soil
  • seeds (If you do not have any packaged seeds, look within your garden for any flowers that contain seeds!)
  • twine or string
  • water
  • ruler
  • scissors (Please be careful when utilizing scissors and have an adult present to aid you in this portion of the activity.)
  • hole punch (optional)

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
