Kids make bus shelter of plastic bottles
A group of students from Canacona’s Satyavati Soiru Higher Secondary School built a bus shelter totally of used plastic bottles.
After years of pleas when the government refused to take notice of their demand of building a bus stop near their school at Dapot-Mashem, these 16-year-olds erected their own bus shelter.
As a statement to the authorities and a show of solidarity to all the green activists, the students used discarded plastic bottles to make the bus stop.
Now that’s some initiative, we say. Carry on the good work, kids!

A report found that 1 million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute, and this number is set to increase by another 20% by 2021 if we don’t act. Additionally, less than half of the bottles purchased in 2016 were recycled — with just 7% of those collected turned into new bottles, and the rest ending up in landfill sites or the ocean.
