    Plastics for pillows and teaching tools, Cameroon

    2 (1)Plastics littering has been reduced in or nearby our campus through the action of ozone club members and non students. They sensitised the school to make plastics collection drums. These plastics are collected, cut into pieces as fillers for pillows, mattresses and cushions. The harder plastics are cut into 3cm x 3cm squares and used to make educative games for teachers and students, such as the PERIODIC TABLE GAME. The reduction of plastics littering has gone a long way to reduce breeding grounds for mosquitoes parasites. Presently both urban and village settlers have endorsed our actions.
