Imaginative Recycling Projects and other fun activities with School Children in Costa Rica
by Maichal Ledgster, Desafio Adventure Specialist
The Desert Garden Montessori school from the United States asked us to help them with a fun recycling project when they came to La Fortuna. The goal was to make a difference and use the unique, creative talents of the children by creating garbage bins using one-liter plastic bottles! Desafio Adventure Company and our Adventure Partners were the proud hosts of this project!
The mission of the school as to create an environment for children in which they are encouraged to explore, create, learn, socialize, and celebrate their unique talents. The school is committed to developing within each child a sense of responsibility and interdependence with their community and the world.
This group used around 200 bottles and took three hours to create something that can plant a seed in the minds of all the locals to show that creating using recycling materials is a wonderful way to create useful things for the community.
The project was a great success - the students had a lot a fun here in the Arenal Volcano area - the Epicenter of Adventure!
Volunteering and recycling in Costa Rica is an excellent way to learn or practice skills, change people's minds, or make a statement to help spread awareness about current social issues such as waste reduction. It is great to do more of these small projects as they impact our lives and those who visit us.
Come and enjoy a unique experience with the rural people of La Fortuna and of course, have an adventure with Desafio Adventure Company.
