HAPI-Kids’ Ecobricks project

Posted by Marissa Langseth | Posted on April 2, 2019

Our HAPI kids’ project today is building eco bricks to save our environment. It is just another event to make use of our  time and talent in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Philippines.

Last March 30, 2019, 7:00 am in the morning at 7C Ilaya Compound( near the Philippine National Railways Alabang Station behind Ayala Malls) in Muntinlupa. We already use the eco bricks that were  made by the children and it’s for  the eco bench. This will serve as their chair on the next HAPI activities. We’re doing this to lessen the garbage on our surroundings and to prevent pollution. As of now, we have 3 sacks of plastic bottles and also 3 sacks of junk food wrappers. Instead of disposing, we try to recycle them  to make an eco bench. Kids together with their parents, are continuously doing it to make the garbage more useful and useful. It also serve as their bonding because they’re doing it happily and voluntarily. They also eat nutritious foods. And after that,  they help each other  clean  the place and keep the materials that they used on that day.

They’ve learned that it’s our responsibility and our obligation to protect and take care of our environment, and everyone has the capability to do so.. Yes, everyone.. no one is spared.

Kids are very thankful to HAPI for giving them the support and teaching additional knowledge that they can use and apply to their daily lives and make them more human. We are all in this together.

No need for prayers to make our lives better. We need to act now, or the planet will be unforgiving.  As humans, we are in control. Only humanity can save humanity.

We always  look forward for another event like this to save our planet. The HAPI kids are always ready to help our community in situations like this. This is for our future.. and our future starts now.
