Act and make an impact – task about plastic trash

 

Why I did the three days of trash challenge?

I did the three days of trash challenge where I collected all of the plastic trash at my home for three days. I got the idea from my geography lesson, where our teacher showed us a presentation that a boy had made of this challenge. I tought that it would be interesting to see that how much plastic trash would my family produce in three days (the end result was shocking). I also wanted to show a few examples how you can simply reduce the amount of plastic trash that ends up in your everyday life.
