At a school run by the Askhar Foundation in India, students pay their student fees with plastic waste. Each child brings up to 25 items to school each week. By paying the school fee in plastic waste, the children help with the waste problem in the area and learn about the environment.
The schools run their own recycling centre, where the waste is divided into recyclable and non-recyclable. With the non-recyclable, dry plastic, the children help to build eco-bricks that are used for simple construction projects at the school campuses.
