No plastic at Liger exploration is a seven weeks project. We’ve done a lot of things such as collected data about how many types of single-use plastic in Liger?, what are they? And how many of them are there?.
We had been collected all the trash around Liger as a group for four days. The first day which is on September, 4th, 2018 we got around 500 trash in Liger. The second day we collect around 300 trashes. The third day and fourth we collect around 200 trash. As you can see all the data there are 500 in Liger. Can you imagine how many are they around the world? There is trillion of trash around the world. Why should we care about all of those problems??? We all should care about these problems because it can cause many problems to the environment including us. It can harm the animal’s life, human, pollute the ocean or ozone. So, What we are trying to do is to help our school from single-use plastic to stop using plastic. We also have trip to go and talk to the Better U company which is a company that use grass for their customer.
The goal of our exploration is just to eliminate plastic straw and single-use plastic bags but the most that we focus on is to eliminate plastic straw. So, we trying to find some alternative tools that can replace it and we decide to give out straw and bags everyone including staff and facilitator. We’ve also have created a facebook page where people can take a picture of when they using metal straw or reusable bags instead of plastic. A page was called No Plastic Cambodia. Please go and help to like, follow and post pictures in our page.
I think this is a very wonderful project that many people around the world trying to do. I like this a lot because it not just to help our environment but it is very helpful to human too. I’ve learned a lot from this exploration such as what is the causes of the plastic, how to work as a group and come up with a great solution. I think the most challenge is to convince people to use all that alternative tools instead of plastic. We don’t want to make them feel bad about using it but we want to see them willing to do it by themselves. I think it would be a good idea if we can continue it not just in Liger but also in Cambodia which really help our country to be a wonderful country.
