Challenge to reduce garbage in pleasure
In Indonesia, the garbage problem has become serious due to population increase and economic development. Currently, most of the garbage is buried as it is or illegally incinerated and discarded. While the problem of marine pollution due to plastic waste become serious.
In the Children’s Forest Program (CFP), we carry out practical instruction of waste separation and recycling at school.
We compost raw garbage and utilize for organic agriculture, and make use of used plastic bottles as planters for planting flowers. What we can do in school is limited. But the awareness of children is steadily changing, for example, littering of waste has been little decreased. Valuing small changes, we will continue steady activities in the future.
