Green School Weekly News

Women and children from the Bali street kids center attended the Sustainable Solutions event, which took place last weekend. The women came to run workshops on how to cut glass bottles into drinking glasses. The price of used glass is very low these days so this is a good use for it.


Lots of people showed their interest in the workshops. The women learned how to set up a market stall, tips on how to interact with customers and how to showcase their products. One of the ladies, Ibu Jerok, completely surprised everyone in front of a huge crowd by giving an impromptu presentation about alternatives to plastic bags together with BBPB. The goal was to expose them to a different environment. It was a huge success!


The kids had a great day too with lots of food and fresh air. Young Sojun participated in egg bombing and left the art room with a special gift from Ibu Jen. It sure beats begging or trash picking. If you missed the demo do come see the glasses at greenschoolshop. Your purchase provides work for widows and other disadvantage begging and trash picker families of Denpasar as well as being recycled. The price is Rp 40,000 Rp. each and a set of six is 200,000 Rp.
