Earth Rangers learn about Plastic Pollution and Lead the Change


Earth Rangers Program

Today was another exciting day for the Earth Rangers as we had an awe-mazing session learning about plastic pollution as well as nursing trees.
At 12 noon the environmental beauties arrived at the UPB Tree Nursery site where we collect and process plastic bottles into tree nursery pots known as UPB Tree Nursery Pots.

UPB Simply means Upcycled Plastic Bottle and this explains why we call our nursery pots UPB Tree Nursery Pots

We all were amazed with some of the pears and mango seeds we planted because they were already developing their first leaves. It inspires to see the fruit of your work and we believe the Earth Rangers’ motivation doubled after seeing these plants sprout.

We assigned roles to some Earth Rangers before we divided them into small working groups.

Earth Ranger Nelvis

Earth Ranger Nelvis was assigned to be our Safety Officer for the day. His duty was to make sure the working environment is safe and that we work in safety. This great guy moved around removed all the nails and dangerous objects from the site as well as monitored as the Earth Rangers worked to ensure that safety was at optimum

When we finished the amazing work, all the teams converged for hand washing and then assist @mr-greens to do his Day 50 of the #seven77 Challenge. #### You can enjoy the challenge here;https://d.tube/v/mr-greens/QmSLLDtmk9CigvBraMAt5iYhKNCSKkjVFsQuKWH9upNbUC
The #seven77 challenge was followed by a lesson on plastic pollution during which we learned and shared experiences about plastic pollution, its causes and effects and some tips on how we can #StopPlasticPollution.
This was followed by a cooperative game and then closing for the day. On Thursday 18th July, we meet again to celebrate madiba.
