Thank you to everyone who participated in the Eco-brick Challenge.  Just under 400 bricks were made, which means approximately 70kg of plastic did not go to landfill.  The competition helped students to understand how much plastic we use and raised awareness about the unnecessary amount of plastic waste we produce.  Congratulations to Currie, who produced the most bricks.

The bricks are being used for creative projects by Mindful Store NI, a new company which seeks to help the public reduce or eliminate their use of single use plastic. More information can be found here
