Font Size

THE JUNIOR Chamber International (JCI)-Duwaling is setting up a learning center in the upland area of Marilog in Davao City using ecobricks, a plastic bottle filled with other plastic materials and used as a building block. “We intend to collect some 81,000 ecobricks at the end of the campaign on March 30 so we encourage everyone to join and contribute,” JCI-Duwaling Vice-President for Business Hannah Chloe Cano said at the launch of the Eco-Brick Project Campaign. Ms. Cano said the learning center will serve as a daycare center and reading nook, especially for children in the indigenous people communities in the area. The project also aims to teach people the importance of reducing single-use plastics and recycling. JCI also conducts ecobrick workshops every Saturday to encourage others to collect plastics and help build the learning center. — Carmencita A. Carillo
