We were almost disappointed to find that there was no rubbish to be found in the water supply where our tadpoles came from, but this is good news - for them!
We were at a bit of a loss about how we were going to make a rubbish sculpture if we couldn't go to look for a dirty river. Then we realised that we had a lot of left-over aluminium foil and cellophane from another school project. So we decided to recycle them to help remind us of our Water Explorer values.
We know that the production of aluminium is very bad for the environment and causes lots of pollution. It is not biodegradable and neither is cellophane. Our sculture shows an aluminium tap with cellophane pouring out of it. It's a bit wonky, but we hope you get the idea.
From modest beginnings in 1995, Global Action Plan Ireland have grown into a mature, national organisation that empowers as many communities as possible to adopt a greener lifestyle and thereby play their role in protecting planet Earth.
