Scouts transform recycled bottles into beautiful planters
At the ECO Fest held on 21 July 2019 in Singapore, Scouts shared with visitors how to inject new life to recycled bottles and transform them into beautiful planters.
ECO Fest is an initiative organised by students and families residing near the Siglap South Community Centre.
The event engaged families to play an active role in environment conservation. It started with a panel forum in the morning by environment agencies, advocates and grassroots leaders to increase awareness on environmental issues and how one can play a part to conserve the environment.
Participants were introduced to various interactive booths on how to save the earth. Venture Scouts from Eagle Scout Group of East area took this opportunity to organize a hands-on session in recycling plastic bottles into bottle planters to grow small plants at home.
Singapore Scout Association received an overwhelming response, and it was a fun bonding time for families. They brought home their own bottle planters as souvenir.
More than 40 bottles were made during the two-hour workshop and smiles were in abundance as families had fun learning something new from the Venture Scouts.
