Feedback regarding Ecobricking

Feedback regarding Ecobricking

Ever since I shared the idea of how to create eco-bricks from household waste, the amount of discarded waste in and around my society has decreased considerably. I take pride in the fact that maybe not all, but at least a group of people liked the idea and decided to act on it. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak started, people have become more careful about their safety, cleanliness, and hygiene. And because of that, I did not have a hard time convincing members of my community to give a thought to the idea. It has been almost two months since I taught them how to make eco-bricks on their own and by now most of them have gotten into the habit of making them. Because of the pandemic, I have not been able to communicate with all of them, but I tried to talk to people who live around my house and convinced them to share some feedback. Most of them said that initially, they felt like it’s too much work. It’s natural for people to feel that way because they are habituated to litter around or dump their Garbage at a dumpster. But since making eco-bricks gave them a feeling of responsibility and a feeling that they were going on the right path, it became easier somehow. Since most of these families have two or more kids, the number of wrappers and pet bottles are relatively high. Children too find it fascinating and a good past time so that makes the job easier. When it comes to the elder community, I tried not to put pressure on them because it might not be that easy for them to move around, collecting wrappers. As far as my family is concerned, my mother has taken a liking to the idea and I’m glad she did. As soon as the pandemic subsides, I will try my best to propagate the idea not only in my community but also in my school, the college I attend, the clubs I’m a member of, etc. I have a feeling that most people of my age will relate to the idea and start their journey of getting rid of plastic.
