Yesterday (16th July) was a great day because we went to the Green sSraw organization building to attend a long session there.
We started the session with cleaning up the street by collecting trash from the ground and put it in plastic bags, so we wore gloves then we started collecting the trash till we fill our bags, in the other side we noticed how the people look at us like strangers but we have to keep moving as we made the right decision. After that we met a clever woman who taught us how we can make the food wastes durable in the soil within short period of time. So she got 3 volumes of clay, every one was above the other and they are opened from the bottom. In this natural way we have to put a newspaper, coconut crust brushes and then we add the soil inside them.
Another interesting thing was the seed balls or seed bombs, it’s a ball made up of dry soil and seeds inside that ball, there is no expiration date for it, you just put it in the soil and plant it only. Then we watched 2 videos about the fashion sustainability in the world and how it is effecting the Asian poor countries like India, Bangladesh, Thailand… And we watched a documentary movie about the climate change and the relationship between the ocean and the human,it makes us feel sympathy with the people who facing the effects of climate change, they live in Southeastern Asia like Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and more…
We also learned how we can make a decorated banner from fabric with a needle and thread only. In the last part of the session we drew a painting about the environmental issues in our communities and we try to find a solutions to that problems.
when we finished the session, we went downstairs to visit Pooja shop, it was very nice shop since you can find eco-friendly stuff such as the recycled items.
l learned from this session how I can save our environment as an active member in my community.
