A QUINNS Rocks teacher hopes to collect almost 1500 plastic bottles to build a garden hothouse.
Quinns Rocks Primary School teacher David Fernandez recently appealed for bottle donations through the school’s ‘Reuse Renew Recycle’ newsletter.
“I know it sounds odd but I need 1440 two-litre drink bottles to make a recycled bottle hothouse with the kids,” he said.
“I have a wire cage in the bay area just outside of the Living Laboratory for the collection site; kids, parents, friends can chuck them there at any time.”
Mr Fernandez said the project would help reduce waste and was “saving the planet a little bit at a time”.
He also wants donations of clean old socks, plastic bags and ice-cream containers with lids, preferably blue.
