Session flows:
● The presentation on Plastic, the biosphere & ecobricks was delivered with examples. The students and the other participants were asked questions in between the presentation which made the session interactive with transfer of learning for everyone present.
● All Plastics were segregated for brand auditing (to collect data of various brands and the amount of waste it generates) and also to spread awareness on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) amongst the participants.
●Guided ecobricking was done for all participants.
● 35 ecobricks were made from the segregated plastics.
● Ecobricker certificates were presented to all participants for making their 1st quality ecobrick as per GEA standards.
● Ecobricks were logged into the GoBrik app
● Hexagonal ecobrick module was made out of 19 ecobricks
● Total number of participants – 35
● In total, we sequestered 4kg 693gms of plastics from going into the biosphere.

A special thanks to the authorities of Rockvale academy for choosing ecobricks as the solution to plastic waste and giving the opportunity to the students to learn and have hands on ecobricks.
We would like to keep our collaboration rolling in order to achieve and make Rockvale academy an eco-friendly school.
